Merieta Bayati is the product of the marriage of a Persian man and a Black woman.
Merieta Bayati’s father Masoud is Persian.
Her mother Sylvia is African American.
We featured Masoud and Sylvia earlier this week in Podcast Episode 68. Masoud and Sylvia also have been featured on our Facebook page and in a past blog post.
In today’s podcast episode, we chat with Merieta to talk about Swirling, and growing up mixed in Jackson, Mississippi.
Merieta is quirky, spunky and full of personality. She gives a humorous, yet thought-provoking account of growing up mixed in Mississippi.
Merieta is the author of The Girlie Girl’s Guide: To Living a Fabulously Fulfilled Life! She’s also very passionate about mentoring and positively impacting the lives of young girls.
