The topic was something I wanted to discuss with my readers when I came here in the US for the first time in 2017. Now when I am here again, I had to write about it anyway.
According to a research organization, more than one million people enter the US every year with an American dream and the number is only increasing. But with the lack of proper knowledge and understanding about diverse aspects of the place they are coming to, majority of people physically/mentally suffer when they start their living here. They wish if somebody had told them the things they needed to know earlier.
So, for all those who are planning to move to the Land of Liberty, here are some must-know pointers before you pack your luggage.
I. Gather information about varied aspects of the state you are moving to
II. Learning to drive is MUST
III. Be ready to do any type of work
IV. You are all set to stand on your own
V. America doesn’t mean it looks like New York everywhere
VI. Make sure you have financial security for your struggling days
VII. Dream big but don’t expect them to come true overnight
VIII. Don’t get fascinated by people who are living here for years
IX. Make sure you are emotionally and mentally strong during your struggle phase
X. If you are coming as a student, plan for university over community college
XI. Get ready for a cultural shock
