The Philippines is a country of more than 100 million people. Its history and its proximity to China have made it an important U.S. ally, but it's had its share of challenges.

The StoryCorps Mobile Booth was parked at the Phoenix Art Museum and was been very busy. We’ll air a conversation each Monday on KJZZ as part of the Phoenix visit.
Today, a conversation between Patricia and Patty Trausch.
Patricia grew up in Illinois. When she was young, she struggled to succeed. After going to college she went on to become a grade school teacher.
Patricia and her daughter Patty came to StoryCorps Phoenix.
