Meet Dee Olateru

Hi there! I’m Dee.
I’m a 3-time immigrant, an executive at a large global firm, a recovering procrastinator, a travel blogger, and founder of The Rich Immigrant.
I created The Rich Immigrant to fill a gap within the immigrant community.This space is inspired by my own struggles with

  • Becoming financially literate in the USA,
  • Finding my voice and place as an immigrant,
  • Finding the right balance between assimilation and
    authenticity, and
  • Finding personal finance bloggers that could relate to my
    specific situation

Armed with my own personal lessons, and with a passion to create what I wish existed, I’m excited to redefine what it means to be an immigrant, starting with us.
