Beryl (South Africa)

I’ve got another South African on the show this week! They keep volunteering to be guests and I could’t be happier. Beryl is from Johannesburg, South Africa and immigrated to the US after spending a few years in Europe. She won the money she needed to move here betting on horse races. She found herself living in Tampa, Florida and met a minister who taught her how to live here illegally. She essentially got a new identity once she got a Social Security Number and bank account. She changed her backstory and worked to get rid of her accent to fit in. She came out as a lesbian while married to a man, then split up and moved to Chicago with her first girlfriend. We talk Immigration Reform, Trump, and what it takes to thrive in America. Thank you so much for tuning in, it means the world to my guests and I!
