Congratulations on your citizenship. I am happy for you.
But, in what ways can you help? I very curious to know. I have been following your post and so far I am still optimistic for your grand help that you have been talking about through out.

Default Congrats

Congratulations.
You have the right to feel what you want. But here are my 2 cents:

You on paper are now an american. It gives you good easy travel without visas etc.
However people WILL treat you by your appearance/color/etc...

I request you to help your birthcountry by donating to schools etc like you donate to charities here(goodwill store etc).

Let me know if you dont agree!

I know the power of citizenship. My wife's father passed away last year in September. Her AP application was pending. We took an infopass appointment to get an emergency AP, and met an officer who was really rude. In essence the officer told us that she can not do anything on humanitarian basis and point blank asked us to go and talk to the Congress.

And that's what we did. We asked one of our friend who is citizen to help. She took my case details and the officer's badge number. She personally talked to local congressman and senator's office. They initiated an inquiry with USCIS, quoting the officer's statement and the badge number ... Three days later we got a call from local USCIS office, filled with sympathy and full of remorse. A week later we got her AP document.

So a citizen can really help. Please make your contact details available, so that when emergency arises, you can help them by contacting the congressman or senators.

Thanks so much for the suggestion. How can I have my contact details available without posting it on Public Forum?

Meantime, please contact me thru PM, if I can be any help.

May be we can have a section on IV website, where we can list 'handles' of our citizen members. People can PM them when a genuine emergency occurs.

Thanks Ujjwal.

Please read my post again. This is what I said -
This is one of my biggest fulfillments and it means everything to me.

What's wrong in that? Aren't you here to get your GC and then USC?

Good Luck yo you, my friend.
