LIFE IN PROGRESS
Welcome to Life in Progress we will be capturing the stories of people who have uprooted from their familiar safe surroundings to larger areas with more opportunity. Welcome to cities of rejection and uncertainty but also cities of possibility and excitement. Each episode you will hear a new path: who they are, how they got here, what they’re doing, where they’re going. We will ask questions and explore experiences and together we will dive deeper into the transitioned life in the big city. Someone once told me you can’t take the same path to success twice, everyone’s is different. I hope this will inspire you to listen and to learn and to relate. I’m your host Rhiannon Rickard and this is Life in Progress.
