Welcome to the Season 5 premiere of Immigration MIC! We’re kicking off Episode 101 with Paula Chirinos from the 100th Episode, and it’s the full interview you’ve been waiting for. 

In this episode Paula talks about: 

Her experience being a part of the 100th Episode, and how she came to be a part of the event. 

Being a DACA recipient from Peru, and growing up in New Rochelle unaware of her immigration status until just a few years ago.  

Her experience working as a writer and facilitator with Herstory Writers Workshop on Long Island, and the influence Erica Duncan has had on her storytelling. 

How the 2016 Election was a life changing year for her, and her take on the national dialogue since. 

Her ambitions to work in global marketing, and looking forward to graduating this year and fulfilling her “purpose”. 

*Also included: a bonus interview with Dina Radeljas (Assistant Professor At Mohawk Community College in Utica, NY) by Jordan Sher, author of “Our Neighbors, Their Voices” – the interview is about Dina’s story about her family escaping Bosnia in 1993 fleeing the genocide being perpetrated by the Serbian government against Muslims. Dina tells of the path she and her family took that eventually led to the safety and opportunity they found in America.
