Earlier today I became an American citizen! This represents the end of a journey that was nothing short of an adventure! I am proud to be able to attest that I came to this country legally, and I earned my new status through hard work and resilience. Now I can vote, I have access to American embassies all over the world, I can apply for a government job, and the list goes on! American has its issues like any other country. However, considering my upbringing in a messed up country, my quality of life has improved tremendously, and I am grateful to be part of this nation! God Bless America!!!
