Show Notes

Judith Mwamba is a teaching assistant at the English Language Center in Boise. She loves math, music, and laughter. Judith resettled in Idaho in 2022 with her young son, mother and brothers, and they long for the day when they will be reunited with her father and older siblings. Judith shares what it's like to feel like an outsider in a new country (which she's experienced twice), how parenting has differed in the U.S. compared to Namibia in southern Africa, and how she has used her own experiences to be a light of hope for the students where she works.
