"It's a new day, it's a new dawn, it's a new life… and I am feeling good" Nina Simone

I remember the day when we arrived in NYC. It was a hot summer day. I was thrilled despite having visited this stunning City a lot of times before. Honestly, the decision to move to America was not easy. I lived in Moscow, a beautiful and energetic city, I had my own business and a life full of interesting people, events and I was absolutely delighted living there. However, my lovely husband is from NY, my son was 12 years old and we decided to change our lives and applied for a Green Card.

I didn't have any fears. Maybe because I am too determined a person, maybe because I like adventures. Nonetheless the first problem was my English: that was enough for a visitor, but not enough for fluent communication. I felt frustrated, even silly. Sometimes I didn't understand what people were saying. I decided to go to school again.

ARNIC was the best choice! I am so grateful for real support: classes, seminars, a nice ambiance. I had everything to help me to feel more confident. I got a great gift! ARNIC became my family. Now I have a strong desire to find my own way here and I have made my first steps on the rocky road of my life in the U. S. Now I have hardly any difficulties in speaking and understanding. I am ready to start my new project because I am an entrepreneur at heart. I want to do my best for children's education and start a business connected with that.
