Sept. 24, 2012, is a day of great importance in my life. On that day I became a legal citizen of the USA. It took over four years and thousands of dollars to go through procedures to achieve one of my life's goals. When I first arrived in America I came on a legal visa and complied with conditions specified for a temporary stay.

I filled out dozens of forms, was fingerprinted, given physicals, refingerprinted, and interviewed in Detroit on numerous occasions.
