Proud to be an American

Three women share their experiences of earning their U.S. citizenship

The fourth of July is a time to celebrate America's independence. It's a time when we extend our hand to thank all the service men and women who've fought to keep this country a free nation. And it's a day to show our gratitude and honor for the sacrifices made by our forefathers in order for this country to be what it is today. However, there are thousands of Americans out there who haven't been as blessed to be born and raised in America, yet these individuals have as much, if not more, love for the red, white and blue than those of us who have only ever known this way of life. Below are the stories of three different women who were once considered aliens but have sacrificed, worked and studied hard to make it to this country that they now proudly call home.
