Voices of Exchange delivers unforgettable first-person stories from people transformed by international exchange.For our first ever episode of Voices of Exchange, we travel to Florianópolis, Brazil, with Critical Language Scholar and disability rights advocate Anna Landre. Anna takes us on a journey of overcoming cultural, lingual, and physical barriers in a new city, while describing the lessons she learned to advocate for herself and for others with disabilities. Through Anna’s story, we learn that we are more alike than different.

Imagine, you've left your comfort zone. You moved to a foreign country that's 12 time zones away, most people speak a different language, and the lifestyle and culture are radically different, but you slowly make your way. And one day you meet a group of strangers that you identify immediately as your kind of people. And, just as you feel you have made it, an unspeakable tragedy occurs. How you react will change your life forever. This is 22.33, a podcast of exchange stories.
