Incredible turn of events. The USCIS has reconsidered my case and approved it just a few hours ago! Thanks everyone for your support.

Can't wait to catch up with everyone in the bay area!

Hopefully, we all will see similar happy ending sooner than later.

Just because we don't belong to the entrepreneurial class we should ignore it and not waste our time?
Get inspired and move on.
