Thank you for believing in me and for guiding me through the right path. It’s still hard to believe that I’m getting a step closer to my dream of becoming a great immigration attorney.  I have started my internship at a law office. I still cannot believe it. I hope this brings you pride and joy to know that I’m exceeding beyond expectations!
