As a child growing up during the Jim Crow era in Andalusia, Alabama. I dreamed of one day becoming a doctor. I didn’t know how I would be able to accomplish this dream, yet I continued to dream about it.
Today, I am not living the life I dreamed of ; but I am living my alternative life . Instead of becoming a Doctor, I became a Civil Servant, working for the United States government. A path I never considered. I worked in the Intelligence Community with the Department of Navy, with the Office of Scientific Research with mostly males that had high IQ ‘s in science and mathematics but very little common sense about other areas outside of their professions.
Then I work with the Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Investigations, in the Freedom of Information Office as a Paralegal Specialist; and the Immigration Office S-visa program Manager.
Green Card another name for S-Visa
Having a Green Card (officially known as a Permanent Resident Card (PDF, 6.77 MB) allows you to live and work permanently in the United States. The steps you must take to apply for a Green Card will vary depending on your individual situation.
How to Apply for a Green Card
Before starting the application process, there are two questions that you should answer first:
1. Are you eligible to apply?
U.S. immigration laws provide a variety of ways for people to apply for a Green Card. The eligibility requirements may vary depending on the immigrant category you are applying under.
Although it wasn’t my original dream life, it turned out to be just as rewarding; see I got to help people in a very different way. So I would have to say that I did live and continue to live life to the fullest; no regrets, just memories of a life I never dream about. My destiny.
