Today, Thursday September 13th, 2012, I became a US Citizen!
The first significant memory I have of the US is from September 11th, 2001. When I came home from school that day I met Joe for the first time and watched the news of the terrorist attacks on the TV with him. Little did I know I would move to the US 2 years later to live with him, or that in 10 years I would start spending every other weekend in NYC - enough to call it a ‘home’.
I came to the US on August 23rd, 2003. Before becoming a citizen I had a visa and then a green card. I feel lucky to now hold a US passport. I feel even luckier that as a dual citizen (England and America) I can legally work in two of the greatest countries in the world. WOW!
