So being on an H-4 visa has defined my life in numerous ways and I thought why not blog about it. I have found blogging to be therapeutic, maybe some kind of narrative therapy, so starting today (March 28, 2011) almost six-years, after I moved to the United States on an H-4 visa I have decided to start writing about it. Why now? Well, why not… It is never too late to begin right!
I have always been a late bloomer or tube light as we Bombaywallahs like to say. I never realized how an alphabet and a number could change my life forever. So starting today I will be dedicating a portion of my blog to how I as an Indian woman living in the United States on an H-4 challenge and struggle with the complexities of being on H-4.
I will try to not write this from the perspective of a victim, because I believe we are all survivors and I have immense faith in the resilience of the human spirit. I hope my journey will give some hope to other H-4 visa holders.
