Snacks and Chats Season 3 kicks off with rapper JessB talking about her struggle with identity while growing up half-Kenyan and adopted into a white family in NZ. We also talk about her rap career and how Hip Hop helped her become comfortable with herself. 

"I went back for the first time in December to Kenya... I got there, and people stare at me even more than they do here, because I’m mixed. Probably that was the biggest learning. There’s probably never gonna be somewhere I fit completely so I’m just gonna have to make my own lane. Or just be comfortable in the fact that I am mixed. I’m me. I’m whole, and I am who I am."
