In the third installment of our interview series featuring intercultural and/or interracial couples, “Kidist” & “Dudley” take us through their fifteen year journey of love and friendship, and share their thoughts on the cultural similarities and differences between Jamaicans and Ethiopians.
In our second of a series of episodes on intercultural coupledom, we interview Elsa and Tom, an Ethiopian-Chinese married couple living in Canada.
It’s a fine line between culture shock and “FOB” moments. What was confusing and painful in the moment– whether that’s mishaps of language, cuisine, hygiene, or social etiquette–becomes, in retrospect, a hilariously cringe-worthy anecdote. We have collected some of these for you in our fifth episode. Our own stories and those of contributors who, understandably, prefer to remain anonymous!
Follow “Senait” and “Kifle” on their journey from a small town in Ethiopia to America. They may not speak perfect English but they have a beautiful story to tell – one of love, sacrifice, pride in their hard work, gratitude for the little things, and dreaming big, despite having to start anew from almost nothing.
