Episode 04 – Katherine (Colombia)
International Voices is a podcast that shares the perspectives and experiences of international students studying at Colorado State University. In each episode, tune in to hear a different take on cross-cultural challenges, lessons we can learn from one another and foods from around the world you should try.
In Episode 04, John sits down with Katherine Lopez Ambrosio, a Master’s student in the Material Sciences program whose research focuses on 3D printing of bone tissue. Katherine is from Bucaramanga, Colombia and this is her second semester at CSU. In the conversation, they touch on the challenges of winter in Colorado, strange foods you can find in Colombia, useful Spanish phrases to express different degrees of love, ways pop culture can influence the narrative about a place and how to be happy with what you have. After this conversation, you’ll be making plans to visit Colombia and see it for yourself!
The stories we share have the power to connect us across borders, fences or walls we’ve constructed to divide ourselves. There’s so much to learn, we just have to listen.
