From Immigrant Housemaid to Harvard Ph.D., Robertson talks about how she achieved her dream.
Scottsdale, AZ – On Thursday, August 18, 2011 Dr. Jin Jyu Robertson was a guest of Irene Conlan on The Self Improvement Show on World Talk Radio. Dr. Jin Kyu Robertson is one of Korea’s top inspirational and motivational speakers. She splits her time between North Carolina and Korea, preparing the second volume of her bestselling autobiography and pursuing her inspirational and motivational speaking talents. At the age of 22, Robertson immigrated to the United States with $100 in her pocket, very little English in her vocabulary, and the promise of a job as a housemaid which wasn’t available when she arrived. Six years later, she didn’t find her life getting any better aside from the birth of her daughter. Hoping to escape an abusive husband and a dull, unfulfilling life, Robertson signed up as a private for the United States Army. Jin Kyu retired from the Army after serving twenty years and received her master’s and Ph.D. from Harvard University. She is the author of Major Dream: From Immigrant Housemaid to Harvard Ph.D which has sold more than half a million copies. Her story is one every one should hear.
Dr. Jin Kyu Robertson’s personal account of emigrating from Korea and prospering in the United States is the basis of Major Dream: From Immigrant Housemaid to Harvard Ph.D. Robertson’s memoir strives to be considered one of America’s greatest personal success stories. She aims to show readers that people can create the lives they want despite the obstacles that often stand in the way of opportunity. “Anyone can create the life they’ve always wanted,” Robertson said. “They have to be willing to give their best, place themselves in positions of opportunity, and take responsibility for producing quality results that cause others to want to work with you and for you.” Robertson wants to inspire and motivate people through her personal story to help them live better and happier lives. Her memoir helps readers of all backgrounds to position themselves for opportunity and to live a life of success and happiness. She will share her compelling story with us.
About The Self Improvement Show
The Self Improvement Show is hosted by Dr. Irene Conlan who is serious about helping people achieve their self improvement goals and begin to experience the happiness they deserve and desire. She has a Masters degree in nursing and a Ph.D. in metaphysics. Irene has taught nursing at ASU, served as Administrator of Nursing at a major Phoenix hospital, and served as Assistant Director in the Arizona Department of Health Services. A certified hypnotherapist, Irene has had her own therapy practice for the past 14 years. She started The self Improvement Blog (http://www.theselfimprovementblog.com) in 2007 and when it reached 45,000 visitors each month, Irene decided it was time to take it to the airwaves.
The Self Improvement Show, like the blog, was created because almost everyone wants to be better, do better, and achieve more. All real change comes from within but many of us don’t know where to find the information or guidance we need to make the changes that bring about the improvement. And many of us don’t know how to work “within.”
The Self Improvement Show will address who you are, why you’re here on this planet, how to go within, how to come to know what you believe and why. Irene States, “Our guests tell their stories about what worked for them and can give you direction for what might work for you.” The Self Improvement Show is broadcast live every Thursday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on the World Talk Radio Variety Channel. http://www.voiceamerica.com/worldtalkradio/vshow.aspx?sid=1822
