This is my first post of 2014 AND it is an utterly joyous one at that. I received some incredible news just before the clock struck midnight on January 31st - My O1 (Artist of Extraordinary Ability) Visa was approved!! After months of preparation, retrieving 20 letters of reference, collecting every press article ever written about me, and compiling 450 pages worth of my fashion illustration portfolio to date, I was recognized by the USCIS as having outstanding illustration skills. Now I have another 3 years in New York to keep reaching for the moon, the stars, and everything else in between.
