My being a writer, and at the same time new to the USA, made conditions ideal for a working relationship with an online venue for migrants, New2USA.com.
At first, I wrote for the editor of the Housing and Travel Departments. He said he was thrilled to work with me because it takes him all of five minutes to review and edit my submissions.
I was then invited to be a member of the New2USA Advisory Board. Soon enough, I began writing for the editors of the Society and Culture and Health and Money Departments. All in all, I've written more than 30 features and how-tos for the site.
After New2USA.com went offline, I felt I needed to share the articles I wrote for them, not only to serve as samples of my writing, but also as a reference to folks who are new (or planning to migrate) to the US. All of my articles are now available. Enjoy.
