My Family’s Immigration

September 24, 2021

My guest in this episode is my mom. Unlike my famous and highly extroverted father, my mother has always preferred to remain behind the scenes. Nevertheless, she is a fascinating, strong woman, and I really wanted to have her voice heard as well. In this episode, my mom speaks about life in Transylvania, my father’s defection, our ultimate move to the US, and about how my family laid down new roots in the Kansas City area.    @drjpodcast    @quadylle    LinkedIn: Henriette J.
