Julieta’s Journey, Mexican Immigrant, Skyler’s Wonderful Wife (1h30m) – Episode 400

Episode 400 welcomes Julieta Collins to the podcast to chat with her husband on the following topics: her parents’ lives before and after they met; her father’s deafness and his challenges; what primary school was like for her; her birth in Mexico City, Mexico, a city of 13M at the time, 22M today; visiting Chicago, Illinois when she was 14 and nearly being sexually assaulted by a taxicab driver who apparently changed his mind; her visual impairment (Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy) and how it has affected her life; the devastating betrayal of her father by her uncle which precipitated her family’s need to move to the United States; meeting the Mormon missionaries and converting from Catholicism to Mormonism; moving to Chicago in 1999 on the same travel visa from 1994, which expired a few months later, and then Salt Lake City, Utah in 2002; losing her Spanish and what little English she had learned the moment she laid eyes on her future husband, Skyler Collins; the story of their engagement in Nauvoo, Illinois; and more.
