A U.S. Passport Makes It Official
I don’t know that much about becoming a U.S. citizen. So when Nduku said she was going to apply for her citizenship, I didn’t put that much thought into it. She’s been here long enough, owns a home, has been paying taxes for years, got her Master’s Degree here, even rolls an “r” every now and again, not quite sounding like us, but her family thinks she does.
When I went to witness her getting sworn in, well, that was something. The number of people getting sworn in, the speeches, the emotions of the whole thing was, well, I felt proud for Nduku. My lady is now an American.
And just to drive the point home, and just in time for our trip out of the country, she got her U.S. Passport in the mail.
Now, it’s official!
