Radio Rookie Danielle in the studio

Yesterday, one of WNYC's Radio Rookies told her story about not being able to be honest with her family in Congo about how hard life is in the United States. Danielle joins to tell her story, and Kim Nichols of the African Services Committee joins to talk about why it's so difficult to tell the truth about challenges.
