Concrete Pastures podcast shares challenges and success about everything from entertainment + cultural differences to overcoming language barriers and navigating the lottery system to secure gainful employment.
Host Nancy Mulemwa Siisii’s goal as a dreamer is to save you time so that you can live a happier life with confidence that you are not alone leaving the country you were born into in search of a new home with us, as your guide to finding your own concrete pastures. The day I realized I was a dreamer, I was a young girl in the countryside of Zambia who would later migrate to New York City. I’ve been right where you are – tired and sick of being tired of dried fish meals my grandmother prepared for my sisters and I while my mother traded goods by traveling to different countries to supply local wholesalers.
My mother gave me the first glimpse of what opportunities come with a strong work ethic. When she asked me what I was daydreaming, I expressed the deep desire to travel to America and she made it possible for me to live my dream.
