Immigrant Women Experiences

Dear Fellow IMOW Ladies

I migrated to United States in 2002 from India, leaving behind a successful career, friends and family in quest of newer experiences and personal and professional growth. Six years later, I am a changed woman. And a happy one too :-). My experiences (be it professional or social) have been interesting enough to fill the pages of a memoir on immigrant experiences as seen through the eyes of a middle-class woman from a third world country.

I am keen on listening to the experiences of my fellow immigrant women....

a)Has the new geography changed your thinking, belief system, and your attitude toward life?..Has it made you more expansive, accepting, broad and more compassionate?

b)How easy/hard has it been for you to establish a social network or personal relationship?

c)Are you happy with your newly built life in the alien land?

I eagerly look forward to hearing from you all!!

Greetings Meghna & all

I visited San Francisco a couple of times in past 9 years and I sense it is the best place for me to take my spiritual work. Living in Ky since 1989 has been easy in some ways but quite challenging in some other respects. Home is wherever I am. I capture my life quest here. www.seek2know.net/mita.html

Glad To Hear that !

Hi dears, :)
I am so happy to read your comments. Its my pleasure to be a new member here in IMOW.

I am a Syrian girl who was born in United Arab Emarites, and is studying now at American University of Sharjah (AUS).

It is true that I have never been to be in U.S. However, my study in AUS has brought me to believe that Women can always achieve what they want even if they are muslims and they live in in arab countries.

I am majoring in accounting and minoring in Music (piano).
My plan is to travel to U.S alone, after my graduation, to taka a bachelor degree in Music (piano) :)

I hope one day I meet you there.
