My name is Fatuma. I am 44years old, single, no children. I'm living and working in Brussels for a regional administration. I currently work as an administrative assistant. I have one bachelor degree in Law and one bachelor degree in public relations. In the past I worked as a PR consultant and journalist. I want to relocate to Phoenix, Arizona as soon as I find a job there. I plan to visit Phoenix around the end of 2018 - beginning of 2019. In the meantime I'm also searching for a job that would send me anywhere in the USA. I'm open to do any kind of jobs (administrative or manual) once in the US and after five years at the most retrain as a lawyer there.

Hi, I just signed up.
I am Melvin, a Singapore citizen but also a US permanent resident. I've been in the US since 1992; when I first went off to college in Tempe, AZ (ASU), then to Miami, FL for my MBA (FIU) and finally settled in North Carolina where I am working full-time now.

The reason for signing up is to help with advice for anyone hoping to move to the US for school or work, and specifically help with challenges faced by Singaporean students hoping to go to US colleges or professionals looking to begin their careers in America.

If anyone has any advice on the E2 business plan (samples ideally) I'd be very grateful.

Many thanks
