Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I am still very young, so I haven’t experienced a lot of struggles with my incredible parents by my side. However, it has not been an easy journey. I’ve worked very hard for everything, and I couldn’t have done it without the support from my friends and family. Being from Canada and trying to work in LA has been tough, and getting my visa, then my green card has been a very long process. I am very happy to say that I do my green card now!

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
