Lillia’s Story

Lillia’s Story

Meet Lillia

Meet one of our ESL students, Lillia, and learn about her journey to the United States.

My name is Lillia. I was born in Ukraine, but now I live in the US in Tacoma. I came here on July 17, 2013. I currently work as a housekeeper and study at TCH.

I never thought about moving from my country, but my husband filled out the application for a Green Card. Coming to the US was always his dream. Then one day we received a letter that told us that my husband had won his green card. I need to say that in my country I had a beautiful house and a good job, so for a long time I didn’t want to move. However, my husband and my two sons really wanted to move to the US.  I agreed to move for my family.

I would like to share that I have lived here for two years, and I have never regretted it. The US is a great country. I like the phrase, ‘’America is the land of opportunity.’’ Because it’s true!
