Jhelum, Pakistan to San Antonio, Texas

I loved every bit of your podcast. Mostly because I was able to relate to it in many different ways. My journey from Pakistan to Texas has gone through many different phases and I’ve never thought about things as optimistically as you do so thank you for your inspiration!
