J1 Visa Process
However, not everything was a bed of roses, through this process I went through ups and downs. For instance, near the travel date, I ended up getting Covid-19 and had to postpone my trip to the embassy. I needed to interview in another state to have time for the response so that I could leave by the end of January.

Despite all the adversities, each passing day I felt stronger to achieve my goals. My will to experience this new journey only increased. Was a challenging process through these last three months, to organize all the required documents and get the visa approved, but it all paid off in the end. For sure it was a great learning experience.
