Primitivo from Guanajuato, Mexico

I am very thankful for the free classes and all the free help that Bonding Against Adversity gave me. I was not able to apply before because lack of the English language and money. Now, I am a U.S. Citizen and I come to help Bonding at every event that I can to express my gratitude. I feel a great satisfaction and joy in helping other people.

Ciro from Venezuela

I think it was very good that a reliable organization like Bonding helped me with the process, because with them I felt confident that everything would go well, and everything turned out as I expected.

Erasmo from Venezuala

I was a cancer survivor during my entire citizenship process but I became a citizen thanks to the help of Bonding Against Adversity and their best volunteer teachers. At the end of my interview, the officer told me ‚ÄúCongratulations! you passed the interview and now you are a citizen‚ÄĚ, and I said ‚Ķ No, I will be a U.S. Citizen at the Oath Ceremony, now I am still a legal resident! Then the officer jumped from his seat and gave me a big hug.
