Permanent residence: How I moved from Astrakhan to sunny California.

Permanent residence: How I moved from Astrakhan to sunny California.
Zhanna Bogopolskaya (Nurmanova) moved from Astrakhan to the United States 9 years ago. She lives in a suburb of Los Angeles with her husband Vladimir, daughter Victoria and cat Vasily. Jeanne is very happy that she lives in sunny California, she loves Los Angeles for its climate, and, of course, the ocean. This cheerful energetic girl combines care for the family with the study and work of a nurse.
How long ago did you leave Astrakhan?
I came to the US in the summer of 2005 on a student program. In the same summer, I met my future husband, and when I returned to Astrakhan, we continued to communicate ā€“ corresponded and called back. When I came to the States the next year, he did not let me go back. We got married, our daughter was born, and I decided to continue my education, to try myself in medicine. I am very happy, I love my work, it brings me satisfaction.
Why did you choose this city and country for permanent residence?
In Los Angeles, I met my husband, his family lives here.
I do not regret it. When I left, I did not know that it was forever, so I really missed my friends and family.
What do you think, what should you take with you to your luggage when you leave your hometown for a long time?
When leaving for another country, I would advise you to take with you a list of telephone numbers, because you can not always keep everything in memory.
What should I take with me from my inner qualities / experience / knowledge? What are your qualities that helped you?
Of personal qualities, I would have noted patience. Iā€™m patient, so I get my way. In a foreign country you need to adapt, but do not lose yourself.
What difficulties did you encounter when moving to permanent residence in another country?
For me it was more unusual to create a family and to have a baby, rather than to adapt to another country.
I hope to finish my education and continue to work by profession.
Unfortunately, there are no such places.
Los Angeles is a big city with a lot of museums, amusement parks and interesting places, and, of course, my love ā€“ the ocean. I recommend everyone to visit this vibrant multinational city.
I miss Astrakhan, and so I try to come more often. The last time I came in 2013 was pleasantly surprised. There are so many new interesting places, for example, the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theater, many beautiful buildings have appeared. I have many friends in Russia, I try to keep in touch with everyone.
Give advice (parting words) to all Astrakhans who want to repeat your path.
Do not be afraid, and you will succeed!
Who would like to thank or just say hello?
I would like to say hello to my classmates and teachers from In-Yaz, as well as to all Astrakhans!
