Natalia Cortes has been living in San Francisco for almost three years and this experience has had a big impact on her life. Originally from Colombia in South America, she spent nearly a decade studying and working in several different countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Now in the United States for a few years, she's gained a lot of perspective on what it takes to make it in Silicon Valley, and how vastly different the cultures are in the United States.

Natalia has been traveling to many parts of the United States recently and happened to be in Minnesota when the Derek Chauvin trial verdict was announced for his murder of George Floyd. We share opinions on that and how it ties into history and the importance of understanding history.

Check out my previous conversation with Natalia for the podcast. Episode 23: Natalia Cortes, Colombia Born Citizen of the World.
