Jerome McDonnell and me.

I was on NPR on Tuesday, January 3, 2017! National Public Radio (NPR) is a non-profit American news organization that provides news without advertising or government money. It’s supported 100% by listeners and private grants. The station in Chicago, Illinois 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. Jerome and I talked about the challenges that international professionals face. We discussed white-collar immigrants who speak fluent English and came to Chicago with a job lined up or to go to school. I told Jerome about Welcome Dialogue and how I help 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. Ha!
