This week’s #TCFBest featured an impressive diversity of nominations.
This week’s winner comes to us from Sayu Bhojwani (@SayuBhojwani) also courtesy of @mccrthykrr. Writing in Quartz, Bhojwani reflects on her early days living in New York working as a volunteer stuffing envelopes. Although Bhojwani had a master’s degree from Columbia and two years of teaching experience under her belt, she was living in New York on an expired visa. Her rise from those early days to her appointment in 2002 as New York City’s first commissioner of immigrant affairs offers a glimpse of the squandered opportunities imposed by current U.S. immigration policies.
The floor is now open for nominations for next week’s #TCFBest. As always, you can submit your nominations in the comments below, via the Twitter hashtag #TCFBest, on our Facebook page, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
