Every immigrant is on a life journey. The journey is a marathon, not a sprint.

Everybody has their own story of how they got here, and how they’ve navigated the journey to this point. Every individual has a distinct definition of their final desired state.

Every immigrant has their own unique narrative. Their narrative is defined by their upbringing, their journey of getting to the U.S. and the dreams that keep them going, day in, day out. 

According to data, there were about 45 million immigrants in the U.S. in 2018 which is about 14% of the country’s population. This translates to 45 million, unique stories, stories best told by the owners.
