Episode 6: Candice Rowe - "This is Home for Them."
When we first met Jamaican Candy Rowe, she and her family a few years into their life living in rural Japan. In our initial interview on The Black Expat, they chronicled their experiences leaving their home country and moving across the world for a professional opportunity that Candy got. If you had a chance to read the story, you’ll remember this was a massive move for both of them, especially for her husband who had never flown on a plane until he moved to Japan.
Now, Amanda Bates checks in with Candy to find out how much has changed since their last conversation. Candy discusses how her family has built a life out “in the sticks” as she calls it, how they stayed anchored to their Jamaican identity and what her children have gained growing up in such a unique space.
Here are some excerpts from Amanda’s conversation with Candy. You can listen to the full episode on Spotify, Anchor or wherever you get your podcasts. You can can also visit The Black Expat YouTube Channel to listen in.
