Immigrants have been coming to America as early as the 17th century. Fiona Citkin, an immigrant herself, tells the stories of prominent multicultural women who overcame the odds to achieve success in the United States in her new book, “How They Made It in America: Success Stories and Strategies of Immigrant Women: from Isabel Allende to Ivana Trump, to Fashion Designer Josie Natori, Plus More” (published by Archway Publishing).

Citkin examines the individual experiences of 18 American immigrant women from around the world who overcame the limitations of stereotypes; these women serve as models of success and symbolize the diversity of the United States. Citkin also captures their collective wisdom, explores the values that drove them to action and success, and presents specific advice to inspire other success-seekers to achieve success — but with their own direction and pace.

America offers different paths to success and Citkin explores many of them ranging from celebrities to lesser known women of achievement. Citkin hopes that “How They Made It in America” is a guide to success not just for immigrants but for all people in any new environment, and that “above all … the book promotes inclusivity and unity of our diverse nation, one nation under God.”
