Gina Miller features alongside Madeleine Albright and Elon Musk in the inaugural list celebrating the achievements of first and second generation migrants. Miller’s history of activism and fighting for her beliefs contributed to her inclusion.
Other winners include the Tour De France and Vuelta a Espana winner, Chris Froome, World Championship Boxer Anthony Joshua and The Evening Standard and The Independent owner, Evgeny Lebedev.
Serial campaigner Gina Miller has been listed within the top 25 most influential and successful migrants of all time, according to research conducted by easyEsta, a third party website that provides services to people who intend to travel to the United States.
Miller made the prestigious list for her lifetime achievements in campaigning — most recently and famously against ‘Brexit’ and the Tory DUP coalition deal.
With migration and its perceived effects forever at the forefront of political discussion, easyEsta wanted to show the immense impact first and second generation migrants can make to their new homes and Miller was a standout candidate.
“Culture is incredibly important to us at easyESTA, we commissioned this study to better understand the significance of migration and how migration has positively impacted on different industries”, a spokesperson from easyESTA explained.
“The research surprised us with how diverse people really are. We gained insight into the migrants’ physical and metaphorical journeys. By understanding the cultures that have influenced the migrants’ lives, a new meaning has been added to their legacies.”
British-Guyanese business owner Gina Miller is featured alongside the likes of Madeleine Albright, Sadiq Khan, Evgeny Lebedev, Chris Froome and Anthony Joshua — all of whom have made an enormous contribution to the country either they or their parents migrated to.
The announcement of the winners comes at a time where politicians such as Tony Blair are calling for tougher immigration controls and the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has declared the end of DACA.
Migration is never far from any political discussion and in a period where walls are being built, “25 of the most successful & influential migrants of all time” celebrates the impact of migration on the world’s cultures and industries.
Migration has influenced the success of both people and countries, whether producing Olympic Gold medal victories or breakthroughs in medical science. This campaign highlights the role migration has played in both first and second generation instances.
Taking key figures from entertainment, sport, science and technology, arts and literature and politics, the research explores their heritage and some of the highlights of their careers.🔷
