My guest today is Reche Mouwembe. She is a 21 year old full-time student at the University of Northern Colorado. She moved to Colorado at the age of 10 with her family from Congo (Brazzaville).

Show Notes

 The Congo comprises two countries, The Republic of Congo where Reche is from, which is on the western side of the Congo River. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly known as Zaire)  is east of the river. The Congolese Civil War in Reche's home country occurred from 1993-1994 as well as from 1997-1999. This is the civil war Reche references that her parents were fleeing from.
