My name is Miguel Majano and this is my first blog about my American dream.
First of all, let me introduce myself. I am a young Spanish architect who has always had a special connection with the United States. Last year I finished my degree in architecture in my country and the situation did not seem very good. Being a young architect in Spain I can assure you that it is not easy.
For this reason, a crazy idea began to grow within me: Why not start my career in the country where I have always dreamed of living?
My first reaction was to think it was impossible. However, after investigating how to get it, Architect-US appeared. Without realizing it, and after a few simple procedures, I was already in the program. I could not believe it. The program staff wasted no time in sending me the first interviews in American studies. And, after a few tries, I got my dream job in Los Angeles! At Standard Architecture! Simply incredible.
It was all too good to be true. And suddenly, the pandemic wanted to participate in my process …
Due to the Covid everything got complicated. The United States closed its borders and everything seemed to disappear. I’m not going to fool you, there were times when I believed that my dream was going to escape.
However, I can tell you that there is a happy ending to this story! I’m writing to you before going to the airport.
A tip for any new participant in the program:
Please be patient, trust your work and yourself. You are one step away from getting the opportunity of a lifetime. The good news is that the United States is open again. So I encourage you to take advantage of it. If someone passes through Los Angeles, do not hesitate to visit me 🙂
Oh! I’m sorry but I have to go to the plane. See you on the blog! I will share every month my best experiences in this great adventure. Here we go!
