Daniela Petrova joins us in this episode to talk about what life was like growing up behind the Iron Curtain in Bulgaria during communist rule. She has a great story and let us in on what life was like back then. She came to the U.S. in her early twenties and talks about some of the challenges of moving to a drastically different country than the one she lived her entire life.

Today Daniela is a freelance writer. Her stories, poems and essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Salon, and Marie Claire. Her first novel, Her Daughter's Mother will be available in June 2019. I highly recommend checking out her work on her website danielapetrova.com. You can follow her on TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, and FACEBOOK.
