Beauty can rise from ashes. Such was the case for Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera when they found themselves in a foreign city such as Detroit during the toughest time in the country, the Great Depression. For about a year, between 1932 and 1933, Diego and Frida resided in the Motor City. The artistic obligation for Diego turned into a metamorphosis for his dear Frida and a pivotal point for her, both as a woman and as an artist.
It is safe to say that at this point of time the whole nation is standing on the threshold of change. Young immigrants are realizing that they CAN do it. Many DREAMers are taking the chance to finally go to school and they are starting to build their futures and speak up openly and without a fear.
To own your business is a dream for many immigrants, but often, many of them have little knowledge of how to proceed and which are the right resources to use. All the business owners, immigrant and otherwise, or everyone who is about to start their business should mark their calendars to attend the Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit (IES) in Davenport, IA.
