Electricity is a big part of  everybody’s life, and particularly students’ lives in both Yemen and the U.S. In this episode of Al Jisr (The Bridge) Podcast, we talk about how electricity (or lack thereof) affects the academic and personal lives of students. Abdullah, a Yemen resident, and Heishly, a Puerto Rican student who now attends the University of Arizona, express their challenges with power outages.
