Aw thank you so much! That means a lot. I think is good to be angry and upset with the current climate because it means you care and change comes from caring and action And oh no worries. The US isnโ€™t perfect and there is a lot of things that can be improved, but it was a long journey to be here and I am proud, being an American citizen has a lot of perks. And is true, the future is difficult to predict. But thatโ€™s why voting and having a voice is so important. Good luck on your journey to Canada :) Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s a wonderful place, and I hope you enjoy the perks that you get once u are there!

Thank you! Well I came here when I was 9, under my dads work visa. After a few years we were able to apply for a green card, we got it after 8 years we got it approved. You must have a green card for at least 5 years to apply for citizenship, I applied last year and got it 2 days ago. Thatโ€™s the overall journey I had. But every process is different, and depending on where u are from also affects the timeline. It was overall a 17 year journey

Well for many places I needed a visa, so I would have to go to my home country, get an appointment and go to an interview and getting a visa is a coin flip. But now I can just buy a plane ticket :) after Covid is over of course, at the moment thereโ€™s not a lot of travel
