Episode notes

Ala Paredes was a celebrity in the Philippines. We're talking TV hosting, magazine covers, billboards, the whole shebang. Her family then moved to Australia and she had to leave that world behind. In fact, she had to start from scratch and made a living working at a cafe, making coffees and cleaning toilets. On the 16th anniversary of her migration, Ala talks to Caitlin and Sarah about what it was like starting over and what it taught her about life as a migrant.
