Ep. 15 - Coming to America - Immigration and Assimilation with Dimitri Diallo

Chris Graves published on

Dimitri Diallo came to the U.S. from Burkina Faso for university when he was 18. He spoke no English, and knew nobody. Today, he's fluent in english. A United States citizen. And even a homeowner. We sit down to discuss his journey from African college student to US citizen. Assimilating in a new country. Racism. What life was like in his home country. And what America's citizenship process is like.
