E06: Nino Melikidze on immigrating as a 17yo, living in 3 countries in 10 years, and dealing with the what-ifs.

Nino Melikidze, Co-Founder & CEO of Immitracker, joins me to chat about moving to the United States as a starry-eyed 17yo, dealing with the survival mentality as an immigrant, culture shocks, and more

“Everywhere I go, I’m a foreigner.”

I still can’t stop thinking about this statement by Nino Melikidze. It perfectly captures an emotion immigrants struggle with - always feeling out of place.

Nino is an experienced immigrant. Her first experience with immigration was as a five-year-old.

Since then, she’s moved to the United States, Colombia, and now lives in Canada.

Nino joined me on the 6th episode of The Newcomers Podcast to talk about:

  • Why moving abroad is probably done best as a student

  • Dealing with cultural differences as you move across different countries

  • The exact moment she realized she wasn’t in the comfort of her home anymore

  • Dealing with the existential immigrant question - will I ever stop feeling like an immigrant?

  • Why fellow immigrants make the best friends, and more.

Enjoy!
