It took Dr. Elizabeth Flores through high school, college, and medical school to really understand herself. Born in America, raised in Mexico, her identity is wrapped up in both places. As it turned out, the physical United States was never her final destination.
Many Roads to Here is a production of The Immigrant Story, in collaboration with Portland Radio Project. This episode was written by Stephanie Vallance and Emily Denny. Our audio editing was done by Kent Randles, assisted by Gordon Graham. The original interview was conducted in Winter 2020 by Britany Cano-Briceno. Our executive producer is Sankar Raman.
Many Roads to Here is expanding. We’re looking for radio producers, especially those from immigrant communities and communities of color, to join our team. We’re all-volunteer for now, but we’ve got dreams. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
