Expats vs Immigrants and Why Americans Should Live Abroad

Katherine Stanley Obando

Managing Editor at The Tico Times and Author of Love In Translation: Letters To My Costa Rican Daughter

Katherine Stanley Obando used to be my boss. We met over three years ago in San José, Costa Rica when I was looking for an opportunity to write at The Tico Times, Central America’s largest English-speaking publication. She grew up mostly in New Hampshire, taught in Arizona with Teach For America, and followed that up in 2004 with a move to Costa Rica where she’s worked in journalism and the public and non-profit sectors.

Katherine joins Without A Path to talk about what’s kept her in Costa Rica, her thoughts on the debate between who gets to be called an “expat” versus an immigrant, and why Americans should travel or live abroad.

When you can live abroad, even if it’s for a short time, it definitely opens your eyes in a way traveling through probably can’t . — Katherine Stanley Obando
