Episode #18: Ellie – From Ireland to the United States as a Working Professional

In this episode of Not an Alien, Ellie shares her topsy turvy immigration journey, as a British citizen of Irish descent, from the British Isles to New York City. Now on a green card, and navigating the additional challenges of being a new mother in a United States which is far less supportive of parents than are most European countries, Ellie confronts the indignities and procedural challenges of the immigration experience with humor. Full of hilarious anecdotes and good cheer in the face of Kafka-esque obstacles, Ellie’s interview should leave you smiling and feeling uplifted.
