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.

Validating

Words cannot describe how validating this podcast has been for me. I could relate to issues of colorism, racism,classism , accent, religious taboos, mental health, assimilation etc.

An important podcast

Thank you for making space for the immigrant experiences, stories we don’t hear much. Would love to hear more from African and Black immigrants :)

Learning from lived experiences

Immigrantly provides a deep dive into issues not commonly discussed in our society. These stories provide a counter narrative to what we often hear shared by mainstream media. If you live in an area where you don’t get to see the vastness of the immigrant experience or have the opportunity to learn about the issues that are most important to immigrant communities, then this podcast is an excellent resource to expand your understanding and knowledge about communities outside of your own.
