Insightful & Personal Conversations
My favorite thing about listening to the I am Multicultural podcast is host, Petronella’s deep respect for her guests and thoughtful questions. I love having the chance to hear so many different people talk about their own personal experiences in a positive light. She helps open up the world of others’ lives in an open and welcoming way. Can’t wait to keep listening when the next episode hits!
This podcast is so inspiring!
I've learned so much about culture & I'm inspired by all the stories & guests she interviews. Can't wait for each weekly episode!
Petronella is amazing!
Petronella is a trusted photographer, not just because she delivers absolutely incredible photos, but because she is trusted by couples of every kind of background during some of the most intimate and important moments of their lives! This is not an aspect that every couple thinks of when choosing a photographer for their wedding, boudoire, maternity, or newborn photos! No one else at "the big event" is present at every single spectacular moment, but the photographer. This must be an incredible person you want there. Petronella understands this aspect so well. She has such a knack for capturing priceless moments because she is unobtrusively IN the moment with her photography subjects. Her unique perspective having served so many persons of differing backgrounds makes her truly an expert in all things multi-cultural!
