For 8 years I have been living in the U.S. as an international student-- not quite an immigrant, caught between countries, always expecting that I would one day have to leave. 2018 was supposed to be my final year in the United States. Instead, today I begin the process of applying for Permanent Residence. Leaving is my humble attempt at documenting what it is like to try, and still want to be, an immigrant in America.
