My name is Catina but everyone calls me Cat. I am from Brasov, Romania. I am here to assist with my 94-year-old great aunt and attend to college at UNCA Asheville North Carolina.
I am a major of journalism and people and places and history interest me. I want to learn American cooking for my aunt, her name is Stela. She loves American dish but until I arrived she can only get it outside apartment in restaurants. She becomes frail and is very difficult now to get outside because of blindness and weak in body and legs.
I put to Google recipes and to get help and I saw this one and applied to membership. I am very pleased to be allowed. I received a message already which was kind.
I did read and understand all rules here. This is my first place of membership. I am studying hard and assisting Aunt Stela but I do not have the facebook which I understand it is popular.
My parents warned me about America that to take anything one must first give because of being foreign. I will share many of Romanian recipes if I could have some American to make aunt happy. I think is that understood that people share? I saw many nice things here.
I am not citizen yet. I am on student visa and next week I take a test and put my hand up to be USA citizen because I am now 21. I lose sleep because I am anxious to be one of you.
I wish all of you wellbeing. Thank you for membership here.

Hello Catina :)

A big welcome to DC!

Lovely to have you onboard

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Welcome to D.C.!
Ain't been to Asheville in many years. It is beautiful country out that way.
I used to be a racist, but I don't have much interest in it since Dale Earnhardt got killed.

Hi Cat. Great to have you on board! I can't share any American recipes with you as I am British, but I very much look forward to seeing some Romanian recipes to try!

And good luck with your citizenship test!

Welcome to Dc Cat. And a big welcome to America. We are so glad to have you as a citizen. When you get sworn, don't be surprised if you see a lot of tears. I have been to a few ceremonies and certainly tears came to my eyes also each time. My first husband was a citizen of Northern England. When he became a citizen, he was given, along with all those being sworn in, a small American flag. His oldest son still has it. Hopefully you will be sworn in before our next election. I live in a city full in immigrant families. And being able to cast that first vote was really a big event for them. Something we Americans take for granted.

Welcome to DC and to America.
