e05: Take the challenge you receive along your nadvigating journey as an opportunity to learn and rediscover yourself, with Dr. Nsima Usen

Dr. Nsima Usen was told by a doctor, 22 years ago, while he was trying to do his landscaping job,  that he is not allowed to enter the physician’s lounge of a suburban Washington DC hospital because “he is not a Doctor”.

This is his Story of how that challenge propelled him to become a Podiatry Foot & Ankle Surgeon. Dr. Nsima Usen shares for the first time his Nadvigating story on the Nadvigators Podcast – Nadvgating the American Dream Journey with Host Bassey Simon

He literally took that challenge to heart. Went home and cried a lot, and decided that he’s going to “Take the challenge as an opportunity to learn and rediscover himself, and he did. 
The journey was not easy but he was able to set his sights to the final prize.
With every success immigrants score in their new adopted country, I believe there is a unique story behind that success, however, you define that success. There is a story about what drives each of us to leave the comfort and security of our upbringing to seek out a new beginning, to dream of a better life, or dream of what’s possible.
