What did you like most about your job?  

My favorite thing about my job is having one on one conversations with our clients, learning about their culture and lives, and strategically planning the best way to help them with their immigration matters.

What was the most surprising thing you learned at this job?

The most surprising thing I learned at my job was the quick changes in immigration law. One week you are doing something a certain way, and the next, you are evolving your way of thinking and adapting to the complicated immigration system.

What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned at this job?

The most valuable thing I have learned at my job is communicating with people from all over the world and from different walks of life. I genuinely value listening to people as they talk about the most challenging times in their lives, which focuses on humanity and staying humble.
