This is the question that I will be answering live during an interview with Ika and Aygun, both of whom are trailblazers and Femigrants.
Ika works at Facebook and she asked me if I would share my story on Facebook Live straight from their headquarters in Menlo Park. Of course I would! So, I am flying in for the day to be interviewed and hang with those two powerhouses.
Most of us Femigrants left our native cities and countries to make a bigger impact somewhere else. We felt deep in our souls that we no longer belonged where we grew up, or we saw an opportunity that we just couldn’t pass up. Some of us made the move with families or a partner, and some of us embarked on this journey solo.
The incredible thing about Femigrants is that no matter how we got to where we are now, we all face some of the same issues.
We want to preserve our native culture, adapt to our new hometowns, and understand our place in this world well enough to make a satisfying life for ourselves.
I feel I have achieved all that. I failed—a lot—along the way, and I also gained some pretty big wins. As you know, part of my mission in The Women’s Code is to share what I did and how I did it. My hope in doing so is for many more Femigrants to follow a proven and tested path.
It would be an honor for me to connect live and in person with you (Facebook Live is interactive) to have a conversation about the steps you need to take to achieve your goals. We’ll also discuss if it is even realistic to think you can turn your dreams into your reality. It’s not an easy road and I know I certainly could have used some guidance.
Step 1: Like the Femigrants Facebook page (so that you get notified when we start)
Step 2: Be online on Friday, August 18th at 5:30 p.m. PST
I can’t wait to meet you there!
