As I arrived in Germany, leaving behind my familiar Nebraska roots, I felt a mix of excitement and apprehension. But it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the country and its culture.

Join me on this week’s podcast as I share my journey of transformation and delve into the powerful lessons I learned from the German culture.
