Almost 20 years ago, Anya Myers entered the American lifestyle after meeting the love of her life. Well-Educated, with job experience and a fabulous German accent – she was ready to chase down her American Dream.

Chasing down became chasing after for many years while integrating into American society and finding out that for example “Fico is not the latest popular name for a new dog breed!” Not to mention other hurdles related to driving in the boonies, I9s, throw away your foreign degree, and facing a money paper dragon (aka a checkbook).

On the other hand…her philosophy is to talk about those hurdles and the stories leading to her tackling them – head on with humor and grace.

Anya joined Mario on 10 Minute Mindset to talk about her journey as an immigrant integrating into the United States, some of the challenges she had to learn through and overcome in the process, and how she is now using what she’s learned to help other immigrants integrate into the United States as easily and simply as possible.
