    Bonus Ep: A Minnesotan Life Coach from Brazil - Paula

    This is a special BONUS episode of You and Me and Everyone We Know, an audio diary made by everyday people living through the Covid-19 pandemic. Today we're talking to Paula. Paula grew up in a very small town in Brazil. On her website she shares part of her story. She writes, “Growing up in Brazil in extreme poverty, I was abandoned by my mother, never met my father and was raised by my illiterate grandmother. She told me I wouldn't succeed in life. Yet, even as a child I knew I was born for much more.” In so many ways she stayed true to her dreams. She's now raising a family with her husband and has an extensive career in money management firms. Paula was seven months in to building a brand new business as a life coach when the pandemic hit in March. Press play to listen to this special bonus episode!
