Despite Sierra Leonean and Nigerian heritage Nkechi ""Kiki"" Gillman was actually born in Germany and had quite an immigrant journey across a few countries before finding herself in the U.S. and becoming both a citizen and a lawyer. Currently self-employed and managing her own immigration law firm based in Minneapolis, Minnesota Kiki is no stranger to the immigration process as she has gone through it herself and has held several different statuses throughout her life journey. We have quite the conversation in this episode and finally we get to speak with an immigration lawyer about their day to day! We touch on her life and her experiences coming from Sierra Leone initially to the Bahamas and then to the United States, what drew her specifically to wanting to be an immigration lawyer and how personal the work is to her, the nitty gritty detail of her Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) casework and the harsh reality of being an immigration lawyer in today’s America. You won't want to miss a thing learning from one of the most informed and charismatic immigration lawyers in the States.
