A Colombian Student in the US

In a poor, hierarchical country like Colombia, it is a rare thing to come from humble circumstances and be studying for a doctor’s degree in Economics. With a scholarship in Logan, Utah, Brigitte left her mother and me in August 2021. She’ll be back as a PhD in 2026.

It’s a big thing to be so far away from family. My daughter’s about 20 miles away, but it feels so much further sometimes. You must miss her. Hope things go well for her.

She’s beautiful and has a very humble face, Christer. I knew she would succeed in her Ph.D. studies in the United States. Brilliant child. I know you are very proud of her and especially her mother.

This is so impressive! She is brave, and her parents are. Going such distance had to be tough for everyone involved but you all must be so proud! This is certainly something worth celebrating!

Wow! I’m surprised to know she isn’t your daughter. That’s so kind of you.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
