Show Notes

In this compelling episode of "Hear My True Story," we engage in a heartfelt dialogue with Edwin Matovu, delving deep into our personal journeys of acquiring a new language. Together, we explore the challenges and nuances of becoming fluent in German, occasionally embracing the courage to express ourselves with a distinct Ugandan accent. Through our candid narratives, we shed light on the unfortunate reality of linguistic profiling, a practice that often leaves individuals like us at a disadvantage when it comes to employment opportunities, educational acceptance, and housing considerations. Join us as we share our experiences and insights on this impactful subject.
