Today I became an American Citizen after living for 7 and a half years in the US. The whole process took about 6 hours and included an interview as well as a ceremony with an oath of allegiance and an oath to the flag. Must say that I am proud to be an American and will try to be a good one. I'll finish this by quoting myself (I was more eloquent before medschool) from a college publication in my "younger days":
"The thing I like about the United States is, if you work hard enough, you’ll get what you want. In other places it’s not necessarily like that,"
said Lubarsky. It is still true.
With me there were 56 other people from 32 different countries becoming citizens as well. Was interesting to hear some stories of people living in the US for over 20 years before becoming a citizen. It was kind of exciting I must say.
