I was on NPR!

Jerome McDonnell is the nicest person!
Hey, everyone: I was on NPR yesterday! National Public Radio (NPR) is a non-profit American news organization that provides news without advertising or government money. It's supported 100% by listerners and private grants. The Chicago station is WBEZ 91.5 FM and they have a program called Worldview.

Listen to Jerome McDonnell interview me on Worldview, a show that focuses on issues of interest to the Chicago international community. I was on the January 3, 2017 show!

Jerome and talked about the challenges that international professionals face. That is, white-collar immigrants who speak fluent English and came to Chicago with a job lined up or to go to school. Some people (especially Americans) might think such ex-pats don't face challenges compared to impoverished refugees or unemployed immigrants, but they do. As I told Jerome, my business is Welcome Dialogue LLC and it helps fluently English-speaking immigrants master American culture. The interview is only 15 minutes long, so please listen. And I'd love it if you let me know what you think! My favorite part of the interview is when I say the American accent isn't pretty.

If you have a minute, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at Emily’s Virtual Rocket. This is a serious newsblog which has been taken from serious e-newspapers and e-magazines from around the world, with an emphasis on transgender issues. Also, with his election, I look for articles which critique Donald Trump.

I hope you enjoy this. Please paste the following:
