“Being an immigrant myself, I know how hard it can be to make new friends and meet people who don’t speak your language. I want my podcast to be both informative and helpful for new immigrants in the area!”
THE AMERICAN DREAM PODCAST STARTED AS A SCHOOL PROJECT…
Now it’s an MBA award-winning podcast with listeners from all over the world!
Katie moved to the United States back in 2015 from Omsk, Russia. Being a teenager in a new country, Katie had to adapt to a new culture, make new friends and graduate high school- all without knowing any English! After experiencing challenges of being an immigrant, Katie decided to start a podcast as her final project at Drury University. Her podcast now has 3 seasons and was visited by many immigrants from Greece, Zimbabwe, Taiwan, Ukraine, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Russia, India and more!
Every episode is focused on the concept of the American Dream. During each interview Katie asks immigrants their story in hope that it will help others. What was the most difficult part about leaving their home country and what was their journey to this new country/community like? What was it like when they first arrived and are they planning to stay here? If new immigrants decided to come, what advice would they give them about how to make the best of their experience? And finally, what is their American Dream?
