My father immigrated to this country in the early 70's on a student-visa.  

After gaining citizenship, he became one of the first Indian union workers at Light Metals Factory in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Almost two decades later, following in my father's footsteps, I became a proud member of IATSE Local 52, Motion Pictures Studio Mechanics. This is the story of the American Dream come to life for both me and my father. I believe that both immigrants and unions, make America stronger.
