I have another South African on the show this week! They just keep volunteering and I couldn't be happier. This was a fun interview with Beryl who is from Johannesburg, South Arica. She moved here after living in Europe for a few years and hasn't looked back since. She paid for her plane ticket here with money won gambling on horses and lived on a horse training facility in Tampa, Florida when she first moved here. A minister helped her create a new life in the US by teaching her how to live illegally. She essentially had a fake identity once she acquired a Social Security Number and a bank account. She had to change her entire backstory to get jobs and work her way up through companies. We talk racism, Trump, Immigration Reform, 9/11, and what it takes to survive in America. Thanks again for listening to this show, it means the world to my guests and I.
