Death of Superwoman: an immigrant's journey

Fabiola Campbell describes her loss of identity and sense of belonging, when she migrated from Venezuela to Australia, as the “death of her superwoman”.  In a very different way to what she’d expected, she discovered her adult identity through the experience of being an immigrant. The process was rocky, at times humiliating, sometimes devastating, but ultimately became a journey of transformation where she was able to recreate herself and reawaken her "superwoman".

In this episode, Fabiola gives insights invaluable to those living in a melting pot country and heartfelt, down to earth advice for other Australian immigrants. She is the Founder of Professional Migrant Women, where she works now with other professional immigrant women in Australia, helping them negotiate their way to a sense of belonging.
