Welcome to Disability Crosses Borders, a podcast and blog featuring the stories where disability, migration and culture meet. I’m Áine Kelly-Costello and today, I talk to two blind immigrants who started off their childhoods in Korea and who go on to live in New Zealand and the US as you’ll hear. Classical voice instructor ju Hyeon Han and disability policy researcher Miso Kwak share their experiences growing up between countries and school systems, navigating parental expectations, exploring their disability identities and much more.
