Welcome To The Immigrant Circle Blog
“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”
“Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign. But stories can also be used to empower, and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people. But stories can also repair that broken dignity.”
– Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Every immigrant has a unique story that describes their immigration experience and as with most things in life, the peculiarities in our stories and experiences as immigrants are defined by several factors. The immigrant circle blog presents the immigration experience through the eyes of different immigrants. We celebrate every immigrant who has been bold enough to embark on this immigration journey.
Indeed “many stories matter”. We begin the blog with the weekly “Immigrant Circle Blog Star Series” and we would like to thank everyone who has sent a story with the hope that it would encourage, inspire and heal others. You’re truly a STAR!
