I decided to send in this mail because I think you are giving a skewed impression about living in the USA. I want to share with other blog readers that living in America is not as bad as TAC makes it seem.
I first moved to Canada in 2000, at the age of 24. I had completed my bachelors degree in Economics and thankfully, I had just received a full scholarship to study for my Masters Degree. When I first moved here, without any family, life was very tough. Even though my scholarship covered my daily expenses, it wasn't enough to send money back home. I was able to get a job in the factory and I must say that was the most difficult part of my stay here. Combining my masters education and factory work was not easy at all. And the cold was killing me.
By God's Grace after 2 years I had completed my education and gotten a job with the Canadian government. Eventually I moved to the US to pursue another masters degree, this time in technology.
I got a good paying job after that and my income is also quite good. Yes, I do miss my family sometimes, but with time I have met some amazing people who I take as my second family.
I think that if I had stayed back in my country, I might not have achieved all that I have today. I have a good job, 2 cars, and a nice home. I can afford to go on vacations to anywhere in the world. I have achieved all these from just my hard work. Mind you in my country if your father is a nobody, you cant achieve much in life.
So anyone that wants to come here, be prepared to work hard, the sky is your limit.
