American Pride with Zoe

American Pride with Zoe

After her second year abroad in France, Zoe decided to move back to the US permanently. She comes on the show to explain how confronting opinions about American culture around the globe made her more proud to be an American.


Season 3, Episode 22. There are an estimated 9 million Americans living abroad. If you asked each one of them how they feel about being American, you'd probably get 9 million unique answers. While we can't ask every single person how they feel, we can - and have! - asked two, and this week, we talk to Zoe, a native Philadelphian who returned to the city after various experiences living and traveling abroad.

After her second year abroad in France, Zoe decided to move back to the US - not just temporarily, but permanently. She comes on the show to explain how confronting opinions about American culture around the globe made her more proud to be an American.

This is the second part in a two-part series about American expats reflecting on their American identity. Last week, we talked about American Shame with Gabe.
