MALA’s story-teller, Sharareh Drury, recently had her StoryCorps segment aired on NPR’s All Things Considered. Sharareh is of mixed heritage — her mom’s side of the family is from Iran and her dad’s side is from Ireland. She recently came to the StoryCorps booth in the Chicago Cultural Center where she spoke openly about being bullied as a child.
This segment was produced by Bill Healy from WBEZ Chicago. MALA thanks StoryCorps and its affiliated partners in our efforts to archive, collect, preserve, and promote stories from our community.
