the traditional narrative about immigrant women is a lie?
are you ready for THE TRUTH
Of the 73 million women in the US workforce, 11.5 million are foreign-born. The truth is--even in the midst of headlines and political debates about immigration reform and in the wake of MeToo and other female-centric movements--millions of immigrants, especially women, aren’t living their fullest potential.
Based on her personal experience and the stories of trailblazing women from around the world and in diverse industries, author Chinwe Esimai shares five indispensable traits that make an ocean of difference between immigrants who live as mere shadows of their truest potential and those who find purpose and fulfillment--what Chinwe refers to as their immigrace:
- Saying yes to your immigrace, an immigrant woman’s expression of her highest purpose and potential
- Daring to play in the big leagues
- Transforming failure
- Embracing change and blending differences
- Finding joy and healing
These five traits are the foundation of the Brilliance Blueprint, a step-by-step guide to help readers achieve to their own extraordinary results and build their own remarkable legacies.
