A journey of an immigrant is not easy. Just getting out from my former country was harder than I thought. I spent two more years living in the Philippines before my application to come here was granted. It was a great challenge for me and my husband as we were living miles apart. He was living in Guam back then. Thanks to the technology, we were able to survive the separation. After 8 1/2 years of living here, I finally became one of them, a US citizen.
We were given a packet during the oath taking ceremony. Inside the packet was an excerpt of the message by the President of the United States. The message was also shown at his video that was shown to us during the program.
Inside the packet also includes a Voter's Guide, the Citizen Almanac book, application form for U.S. passport, and the booklet for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
Although I am living here for the past 8 years already, becoming a citizen is yet a new chapter, a new journey to enjoy with my family.
How about you, do you any experience like me?
