My interview last week Thursday went flawlessly.
The interviewing officer was from Romania, where I’ve been multiple times, so we had a great connection.
They scheduled our Oath Ceremony the same day, and I became a US citizen on Feb 3, 2022.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me on my journey to become a US citizen.
I’m incredibly fortunate to have an attorney that believes in me and my abilities and gave me the confidence to pursue the American Dream.
I hope to make you even more proud of my future careers and life experiences in the US.
