Michelle Barrionuevo-Mazzini Started Casita Michi Candles To Celebrate Latinx Culture

Michelle Barrionuevo-Mazzini launched a second small business in the Fall of 2020 called Casita Michi, a California-based brand that celebrates Latinx heritage and culture through artisan goods. Michelle is a self-taught artisan and one of the first Latinx candle makers to have her products featured at Macy's. 

Her mission is to inspire, empower, and motivate her community to be seen through her artisan goods, because representation matters. Her velas (candles) are made of vegan coconut wax and they are imbued with her Latinx heritage through various scents that conjure her upbringing with each light of the wick.

Nithin and Susan From R Is For Rice Talk Representation in Children's Literature and Self-Publishing

Nithin and Susan are two of the co-founders of JKL Teahouse, publishers of "R Is For Rice." They joined the show to talk about Asian American representation in children's literature and starting a self-publishing brand. 

As Asian Americans growing up in the U.S., they rarely saw themselves reflected in popular books and media. They created their first book, R is for Rice, to celebrate Asian cultures infused in daily American life. Their goal is to take readers on a journey through the alphabet with the ABC’s of Asian American foods. At JKL Teahouse, they are proud of their multiple Asian heritages, and they are proud to be Americans. Their mission is to inspire a broader definition of “American” by offering products that reflect Asian Americans and the impact of Asian communities on American life. 

Listen in to learn more about how they are working to create a more inclusive world through kids books. Available anywhere you podcast.

“R is for Rice” levels up stroytime with companion Sticker Sheets to boost creativity and create a unique reading experience. Sticker Sheets are sticker pages with several custom, peelable stickers. They are a fun, economical way to showcase multiple designs on one sheet.
