My name is Yasmin, but most people call me Yaz, I’m 25, an experienced marketing professional and recently turned blogger from Glasgow, Scotland.
I recently moved to New York, USA as my husband is a US Citizen!
Seeing as I’ve always loved writing and have kept a diary for the past 7 years, friends and family have suggested that I start this blog as a way to document the immigration process and my new life in the US. This way they can keep them up to date with everything that is happening! So I’ll be writing about the entire K1 Fiance Visa process, all the way through to moving and getting set up in the US, my marriage, the AOS process for my green card, finding a job and a lot of other things along the way!
Another reason for starting this blog is that I’m hoping I can lend a helping hand to anyone that is in a similar situation. Whether that be someone who is going through the process currently or at the early stages of reading for more information. I know when I was researching, I couldn’t find a lot of blogs containing personal experiences, even less from someone specifically from the UK!
One thing I will say from the start, contrary to popular belief, the process of immigrating to the US through marriage is not for the faint hearted and it’s not “easy”. The process does not stop once you enter the US either, it requires a lot of organisation, a fair amount of money and at times can be pretty stressful. However as long as you approach it as a team it’s obviously completely worth it in the end when you get to be together full time!
