About Us

My name is Saadia Khan. I am a social entrepreneur and the founder and host of Immigrantly. Immigrantly is a weekly podcast that deconstructs the archaic stereotypes of what it means to be an immigrant, a child of immigrants, a person of color, and everything in between. Each episode brings a fresh perspective on the issues we address. Our conversations are complex, challenging, and often messy. But I wouldn’t trade the messiness for anything, because what we have created instead is a new, ongoing dialogue full of rich nuances.

"One More Push: Defining Advocacy through Technology"

A Double-Edged Sword Existence

When COVID hit the United States, & DACA decisions were in limbo, the Immigrantly team sought to learn how the two events were being felt by undocumented immigrant communities esp undocumented APIs. With guidance from RAISE, today's episode is as much a conversation on the complicated portrayal of undocumented Asian Americans as it is a microphone for some of these unheard voices.
