Sanjeev Jindal immigrated to the United States from India in 2003, where he had worked in engineering. Upon arriving in the United States, Sanjeev, like so many other immigrants, struggled to find employment and found work in a convenience store, fast food restaurant, liquor store, and as a taxi driver to support his family.
After working hard for ten years, Sanjeev found a career path in the insurance industry and found success in founding his own business. Having experienced the difficulties of being a new American, he began volunteering in his community and got involved with local political campaigns. Through these outlets, he has advocated for others like him to bring more attention to the struggles immigrants face finding careers in their new home.
Sanjeev has been an active member of numerous local community groups, acting as the Public Relations Chair for the India Association of Long Island, Director of Operations for South Asians for Strong America, and as the Managing Member for South Asians for Empowerment. Through these groups, he has worked to help local immigrants learn English and improve financial literacy. In addition, he has worked to organize women’s empowerment programs as well as health and wellness expos. He has also served as the Public Relations Chair for the India Day Parade.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, he has worked to help small businesses survive, including through a Facebook group he started that helps businesses deliver goods.
As a successful small business owner, Sanjeev wants to empower others to achieve the American Dream as he has.
