Joy in Community and Diversity: Mónica's Stories from Ecuador to California - Episode 22

Our guest today is Mónica Baez (pictured left), an international baccalaureate psychology teacher and foodie from Ecuador who spent six years in the U.S. She describes the time at her small California Christian university as a magical experience where she enjoyed rich diversity, close community, and added grace in her faith practice.  Mónica found that being outside her country helped her to define her own cultural viewpoint and gave her a foundation for who she is today.
