Sarah Rapp talks about growing up in Germany in a homogenous, privileged, cultural bubble and shares her journey of becoming a world traveler, learning from other cultures, and giving back. She explains why Mexico and Albania are her two favorite countries, and how joining JA Worldwide changed her life and set her on the path to becoming a global citizen. She shares her experience living in Malta, and her transformative trip to Ghana. Sarah opens up about how her social and political consciousness developed, and why she is so passionate about human rights around the world. She talks about launching the “How to Be Global’ podcast, and reflects on what she has learned from her guests over the first 100 episodes.
