Any of you wonderful creative ladies on an O1 visa? My process has me incredibly anxious and I need to know some success stories.

It’s an outdated story, but my dad was on an O1 visa when we moved here! I am now going to be the first in my family to be a naturalized citizen (my parents and brother are still just permanent residents). So definitely success! And he came over from a small company that got bought up by IBM.

I went from company sponsored H1 to self sponsored Green Card. I feel your pain. Hang in there. The new administration has slowed down the process a lot but the freedom you will have after is special and worth it.

Agreed! I’m finally going from a permanent resident to naturalized citizen after almost 20 years of coming here (as a kid under my dad’s H1). Stay persistent and don’t give up if you know you deserve it. It’s harder than ever, but you are worth it.

Yes! A very good friend of mine just got his (and wife’s) green card after having had an O1 visa. And I was on a H1-B and have a green card. Not the same visa but same arduous immigration process. It is nerve wrecking and arduous on every single step but it will end well. Things are a little slower than usual re: immigration right now but they’re still moving along. Believe in it!!
