For our last week of the summer we bring you stories of change, challenge and identity!
Hosts Carlos Nieto and Isaac Noren speak about what it means to be themselves and how others view them. Isaac Noren takes us into to the mind of a girl born in the wrong body and tells us about how she’s adjusting to her new life. Then Srikar Penumaka gives us an inside look on a religious refugee from Bhutan, how he’s adapted to American culture and how he’s slowly trying to bring his two worlds together through technology.
