Episode #41: Ayesha – From Pakistan to New York City as a Young Adult

In this episode of Not an Alien, Ayesha recounts her journey – as a young adult relocating with her family – from Pakistan to Texas and on to New York City. Sponsored by Ayesha’s uncle, her family went through a 14-year-long process before, at last, having the opportunity to come to the United States. Now, Ayesha is balancing college and work in New York City, while helping to support her family and embracing the openness and diversity that define the City.
