With the excitement and at the same time anxious to present their exam as soon as Tuesday, March 28, participants attended this important event to lose their fear and gain the confidence necessary to participate in the interview and pass the naturalization exam.
For those who are just starting the process, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Officer Donald Jarrell, gave the presentation about the naturalization process, including eligibility requirements, the application, the interview and the ceremony.
After his introduction, attorney Jorge Rivera of Rivera Picado Law spoke about the importance of completing the application correctly and advised to comply with all requirements before sending the request not to lose the money.
Participants who already have their appointment for the interview, stayed to practice the N-400 application and the 100 civic questions with the bilingual volunteers of MIRA USA. In groups of 6 to 8 people and in a very educational way, the participants practiced all the issues of the application in English as preparation for the mock interview. After this practice, they had the opportunity to do the mock interview to lose their fear and have more security at the time of their actual interview with an immigration officer.
There is no doubt that this workshop has been a bridge to help all people who are in their naturalization process. Not only for those who already have their interview scheduled, but also for those who want to start the process and don't know how.
According to the participants, this workshop gives them the tools they need to complete their process successfully. A particular case is that of Esperanza Arias, who attended the seminar that took place in September 2016 and has already fulfilled her goal of becoming a US citizen. Pilar Hanes, a journalist for the news magazine Mundo Hispanico, recorded her testimony in her interview for the news program in Tampa.Hanes attended the workshop to do a complete report and see the benefit that MIRA USA is providing to this growing community in the United States.
