Immigrants of the week: Iris Gomez and Rihanna

by Greg Siskind

Immigrant Of The Day: Iris Gomez - Author, Lawyer


Not to many immigration lawyers have their books reviewed by Oprah Winfrey, but Colombian-born Iris Gomez has. That's probably because she's written the hot-selling novel "Try to Remember" about a teenage teenage Colombian immigrants struggles in her new country. I had the opportunity to meet Iris recently and am enjoying the book (along with various other folks at my office). Click on the book cover to go to the Amazon page where you can order your copy.


Immigrant of the Day: Rihanna - Singer


Barbados-born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, better known simply as Rihanna is one of the biggest singers in the world. She immigrated to the US at the age of 16 and a year later in 2005 released her first album. She has since become a legend with hit after hit and winning multiple Grammy Awards, People's Choice Awards and numerous others.
