Make the American Dream Come True

June 14, 2022

For the past 25 years, Sheela Murthy has made it her purpose to strive for a better world, primarily by helping immigrants maneuver through the legal paperwork and proceedings they need to become United States citizens and create a home for themselves in the country. She taps into the knowledge she gained as a law school student at Harvard University, her first-hand experience as a woman of color immigrating from India to the U.S., and the wisdom she has learned by leading one of the most successful immigration law firms in the world. Hear her insights on such issues as how to think of problems as opportunities, accept that you are perfect just the way you are, and take charge of your team.
