The United States of America is the land of the free, where opportunities skyrocket for its inhabitants. The USA being a global powerhouse in terms of governance and economy, continues to open myriad opportunities for the American people. It is true being a qualified professional can mean a series of benefits for you and your career because the country’s laws and policies are carefully designed for people who work and constantly add value.

That is pretty much the American Dream, which the citizens are inspired by and constantly pursue. In America, you are likely to find local but a whole diverse community mixed up of different ethnicities, racial, religious, and social backgrounds. The country unites them all on one map, and no matter who you are and no matter where you are originally from, you are meant for success if you put your foot on the pedestal.

There are a vast number of stories of people who came to America as immigrants and are well recognized in the country for their vast contributions. Being American citizens, the immigrants continue to play a resounding role in spinning the wheel of the US economy, pushing the country well above all other progressing countries in Asia and Europe.

America prides itself on its immigrants, some of the most respectable people gathered from around the world. These immigrants have taken hold of a great number of institutions and even Congress and Senate. However, there is a major stereotype regarding the Indian community, which migrates to the United States. It is a fact that most Indian people pursue education and occupations in sectors like medical science, business, law, and economics.

There is a scant number of Indian immigrants in Arts and Humanities. This is because the Indian people belong to a culture where arts and all its divisions are not considered equal to STEM and Business or Law. Most young people in India constantly face society’s pressure to pursue careers in the most populated occupational sectors.

On the other hand, the arts and humanities sectors are continuously depleted of male professionals. The local Indian men tend to not find enough support to pursue careers or have aspirations to be artists, designers, etc. back in India.

However, with the progression of liberal ideals, the mainstream cultural norms are slowly taking off the Indian society. A remarkable example is Kaushal Vishukumar, a decorated designer from South India who is now based in the United States. Vishukumar, as a designer, has earned both local and international accolades for his work and has collaborated with a vast number of noteworthy names in the fashion fraternity across the United States.

The fashion designer holds the iconic O-1 non-immigrant visa which is issued to individuals with an exceptional ability and achievements in arts, science, education, business, or athletics.
