Starting from a pedagogical interpretation of the radicalization of conflicts, the article proposes a new perspective to see migrant women and mothers as agents of positive actions and relationships in family contexts and in the communities where they live, by overturning the stereotypes that accompany the representations and educational interventions, which are often addressed to them. Through a life professional story of a Nigerian ethno-clinical mediator, the article will shed light on the different dimensions of conflicts that are at the intersection of these women’s life and challenge migrant women, educators, institutions and the mediator herself by activating a process of transformation, in which reclaiming one’s own voice is a way to re-appropriating of one’s own identity and future. Listening to these women’s voices and adopting an intercultural approach allows us to put down new “roots” and nurture more equitable narratives to engage, us all, for a more inclusive society.
