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 oftentimes 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.

Born and raised in Iran, and having attended the University of Tehran where she received a BS in Industrial Design, Shiva is an entrepreneur. 

She later moved to the US, where she received her Masters in Industrial Design at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. 

 Shiva currently lives in Portland, Oregon, where she is working on a host of projects including in-it, a video-based social media campaign that’s intended to help individuals spread awareness about issues they are passionate about.

I’m excited to have Shiva on the show today to discuss her work, as well as the continuing development of Iran-US relations.
