EB1 Donagh, Internet Executive
I’m originally from Dublin in Ireland. I have had a few careers: working in law, music, television programming, cable TV and online media. The one constant in all my jobs has been a fascination with the internet, and its ability completely to reinvent industries it collides with: whether travel, media, music, retail, anything really.
My work has taken me to many places, and I have been fortunate to live in the UK, the Netherlands, Australia, Venezuela and now the US! I always had fun whenever I came to visit America, and felt energized and enthused, whether here on holiday or business. Eventually, I came to realize that America really is a meritocracy in the sense that hard work and effort really will pay off, and there are very few limitations based on where you come from.
Americans are open and interested in what you can contribute, not what you have done in the past, or what your parents did in the past. I received a personal recommendation.
I applied for an EB1 Green Card. This gave me maximum flexibility: I applied for it on my own account, meaning I could work for any employer and did not require sponsorship or labor certification.
The process was remarkably fast. I filed on 5 March; I received my green card on 28 June. The entire process took 16 weeks. I was very fortunate in that I did not encounter any issues with USCIS.
I really appreciated the absolute clarity which was brought to bear. I was never in any doubt about who needed to do what by when. Information was shared transparently: it was really clear at all times how much things would cost; how long things would take; who was dealing with what; and how matters would be conducted. Chris is refreshing in his candor: he was very straight with me about my prospects and what I needed to do in order to prepare my case in the best possible light.
I was sitting on my sofa with my dog, and I thought I would log on to the USCIS website just to make sure that everything was in order, and to check things out. This was about a week after I had filed. I logged in using my receipt number. I was amazed to see the status on my case as ‘Decision’ and that my petition had been approved. I had to re-read it 3 or 4 times. I couldn’t believe it! It was a wonderful feeling, very exciting.
Like many others, I like the sense of opportunity and freedom from living in America. I also like the fact that America is comparatively young, and is still figuring out many issues on what kind of country it wants to be. I miss friends and family who remain in Europe, though now they get to visit me here in New York!
If you want it, do it! Figure out why it is you want to be here and let that guide your actions.
