The Carnegie Corporation of New York recently unveiled its 2023 Great Immigrants list, paying tribute to remarkable individuals who have made noteworthy contributions in their respective fields.

“Mandalorian” star Pedro Pascal, Grammy-winning singer Alanis Morissette, World Bank President Ajay Banga, and Academy Award winner Ke Huy Quan made the list, which honored 35 noteworthy naturalized American citizens.

“The Great Immigrants initiative is a tribute to the legacy of Andrew Carnegie, a Scottish immigrant who, like these honorees, found success in America, contributed enormously to his adopted country, and inspired others to do the same,” said Dame Louise Richardson, president of Carnegie Corporation of New York and a naturalized citizen herself, in a statement. “The 35 naturalized citizens honored today embody that tradition, reminding us that the contributions of immigrants make our country more vibrant and our democracy more resilient.”

The immigrants on this year’s list hail from 33 countries and are trailblazers in various fields, including the arts, education, business, philanthropy, and government.

Since 2006, the foundation has honored more then 700 remarkable immigrants.
