IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JIN KYU ROBERTSON - US ARMY CAPTAIN

Kyu-Jin-Kyu-graduation-190eng11feb09
Korean-born Jim Kyu Robertson has lived a truly American story. She came from modest means in her native country for a housemaid job at the age of 22. When she arrived, the job was gone and she managed to survive waiting tables in a restaurant. She worked on her English skills and enrolled in college. She then joined the US Army and continued to work on her English. The Army allowed her to continue her studies and within a few more years she was an officer overseeing 50 soldiers.  She also went on to hold the position of liaison ot the Japanese Self Defense Forces, the first woman to hold the job. After retiring from the US Army, she went back to school and in 2006, she received a Ph.D. from Harvard in Asian Studies. And now her daughter Jasmin, also a Harvard graduate is serving in the US Army. The Voice of America has profiled her this week and I hope more people learn about her story. Hat tip to Dan Kowalski for telling me about Dr. Robertson.

    Hi Greg, this is Jin Robertson. Thank you so much for selecting me as one of the Immigrants of the Day. It is a great honor for me and my family.
    Since then, I am now a radio talk show host of the Voice America (NOT Voice of America, this time)/World Talk Radio, world's leading internet radio, and would like to interview you about your life and work, especially in relation to the Immigration policy of the country. My daughter, Major Jasmin Cho in the U.S., who aspires to study immigration law some time in the future, co-hosts our show, "American Dreams: The Sky Is The Limit". You can check out the previous shows at

    Hi Greg, this is Jin Robertson again.
    The U.S. Army was the gate to my American Dreams and did so many wonderful things for me and my family. Learning about my life story, several Korean fans of mine joined the U.S. military, and some of them became commissioned officers, following my footsteps like my own daughter.^^
