Feel Like You Belong on WKTV is your source for real stories about the real people we call migrants. They may be the seasonal workers who traverse the country picking our daily produce. They may be the expatriates who come on temporary assignment for their multinational companies. Or they may be the intrepid souls who have committed to calling these United States their new homeland.
People have been migrating since time immemorial. They have moved for safety from earthquakes and drought. From war and disease. From persecution and economic hardship. They have the same characteristics as our immigrant forebears who gave up the familiarity and comfort of home in order to take risks and build a better life.
Join us here every week with these heroic storytellers and learn about what it is that still makes America a destination for entrepreneurs and risk-takers. The people who moved themselves and their families across deserts and oceans. People who add to each new generation’s vibrancy and can-do spirit. Welcome to Feel Like You Belong.
Praveen Shanbhag is a smart guy with a PhD in Philosophy. Like most philosophers, he spends time asking good questions. Questions like, “Why can’t universities (who employ really smart people) correctly pronounce the names of their students at graduation ceremonies?” Unlike most philosophers, Praveen went beyond asking; this son of Indian immigrants started a company to help us get each other’s names right. We have a name for that: Genius! See the interview here:
