Thank you all and thank you Addie. I go to next Wednesday to take the test and if I pass it I go then to put my hand up. I do cry about it already. I am extremely excited and anxious. Aunt Stela said to me she cried when she became the citizen of the USA in 1951.
I have studied hard for this special privilege and voting is something special for me in this country.

Maybe you will not believe of this, but it is the truth. My test was 100% correct! I am now an American. I am very happy and I did have tears in my eyes. My aunt Stela took me a treat to a meal at a place it is Olive Garden. Such good food was there.
I only wish my mother and father attended. But we called to them and they were proud and it was said that I did well.
Cat

That's wonderful news, Cat! Wow, 100%! I wonder how many of us who were born here would do as well.

Congrats, citizen!!!

(And I like Olive Garden too)

Hi Cat and welcome to DC! Very touching that you are taking care of aunt Stella. I look forward to the recipes you'd like to share. Congrats on your perfect score to be the perfect American (I am US citizen)! Obama should send you a Tweet/email!

Congratulations Cat. There are a lot of Natural Born Americans that couldn't pass that test. We need 100% Americans like you. Welcome to our country. And you are now an official member of DC. We have shortened your name and given you a nickname. Cat!
