Financial Center Manager / Podcaster / Content Creator / Mom
Nancy Mulemwa Siisii was born and raised in Zambia, Africa, but later migrated to America and settled in New York where she has been living for 20 years. She has over 15 years of experience in the financial industry, and currently, works as a financial center manager. As a dreamer, she has and continues to have a passion for making substantive bonds with audiences, and helping to inspire people to reach for their dreams.
Being an immigrant has been one of the most challenging and extraordinary experiences of my life. It inspired me to start my podcast “Concrete Pastures: An African Immigrant Story” as a platform to reach out to fellow immigrants and dreamers. My goal is to provide a platform for myself and others to share their stories as we deconstruct the world’s view of immigrant status, and unlock the joys, laughs, and bravery that a dreamer brings about.
