Speaker & Facilitator
I love to speak to immigrants. When I enter the room, I feel their energy, I feel their need for education and encouragement, I feel their need for being understood & comforted, because I´ve been there myself.
Speaking in a room full of these brave human beings who have left their native countries and their loved ones, sometimes forced by circumstances and sometimes in search of a better life, is for me the most emotionally rewarding activity I know.
Newcomers need someone who is like them, who doesn´t speak perfect English, someone that reaches out with compassion but that knows how to shake them out of their fears and their comfort zone.
