Port Of Entry Podcast: Why This Woman Left Behind Her Life In The US To Take Care Of Orphaned Kids In Mexico
In these “Border Voices” bonus episodes, we feature shorter stories spotlighting people who identify as transborder, fronterizx or simply have something to say about how the U.S.-Mexico border has changed their lives. Today, meet Danya Gresham, an American expat who left behind her life in the U.S. so she could help take care of orphaned kids in Mexico.
Years ago, Danya Gresham left behind her life as a real estate broker in Las Vegas and started a new life at the border.
She now helps run a group home for kids in Tijuana, Mexico.
How and why did Gresham end up at the border taking care of these children in need?
In a new bonus episode on KPBS’ border podcast, “Port of Entry,” host Alan Lilienthal helps trace her path.
