Meet Sierra (US) and Tewabe (Ethiopia)
Sierra and Tewabe met End of 2017 in Ethiopia, Sierra helped with excavations at the Sudanese border as part of her archaeology studies [9:51]. Tewabe was part of the group of the Ethiopian students and this is how they started working together and digging in the dirt - as they describe it. After some time they started communicating and became friends first. Even though Tewabes English was only OK, they had profound conversations.
Their story underlines how different communication can be between different cultures [40:30]. For example, the two would almost not have become a couple if Tewabe hadn't put all his courage together. Between 2018 and 2019, Sierra took every opportunity to visit the country again, to get to know the culture even better and finally to get to know most of Tewabe's family [34:43]. If you listen to her, it soon becomes clear how much she loves Ethiopia and that she appreciates and respects its culture.
We also talk about the first meeting with Tewabe's parents and why Sierra felt so welcomed. We respect both of them a lot, Tewabe moved to the US in 2020 without ever visiting the country [46:16]. Although they couldn't attend the wedding, Tewabe is fully supported by his strictly religious parents. He left his good and beloved job to build a life together with Sierra. The circumstances were not perfect, but they have big plans for the future [1:01:06]. If you'd like to know more about Sierra and Tewabe check out their Instagram-Account.
