Fascinating Authors Interview – Jin Robertson
Born in Korea, Dr. Jin Robertson has worked as a factory girl, waitress, housemaid, U.S. Army major, and receive a Ph.D. from Harvard. Korea’s most popular inspirational/motivational speaker, is the bestselling author of a memoir, over a half million copies sold. A host of radio talk show “American Dreams: The Sky Is the Limit” on the Voice America/World Talk Radio.
Inarguably one of the most profoundly affecting memoirs of the decade, Major Dream: From Immigrant Housemaid to Harvard Ph.D. by Jin Kyu (Suh) Robertson is a major stroke of genius, hard work, and faith. In it there is major drama, major heart, major grit, and a major in the U.S. Army. And if one uses the half a million copies sold in Korea as any indication, it’s destined to be a major success. In seventeen engaging chapters with titles like “An Unwanted Baby Girl in Wollae” and “My First Love Ends: My American Dream Begins,” the author uses a flashback approach beginning with her Ph.D. from Harvard, which was a far cry from her beginnings in the United States as a housemaid. Robertson’s experience has been lauded as one of America’s greatest success stories. Her success is evidence that people create the lives they want, and there’s nothing that can stand in the way of opportunity.
