“I was part of the batch in which there was a massive retrogression. Since it took a very long time, my previous employer abandoned me. One of my friends signed up with Health Carousel and he was the one who encouraged me to sign up with them as well. I just communicated with them via email since I was working overseas. I signed up with them in 2015. Before the year ended, my priority date was captured and my priority date was already current.
In 2016 I started to process my expired papers and I was able to secure the necessary requirements needed for my application. By July 2017, I received the notice for my embassy interview, and in a month and a half I passed. I flew back to the Philippines and arranged my other pending requirements – specifically my driver’s license. It took me another 2 months to finish everything.
By the grace of God, I am now scheduled for my departure for my first job in the US. It’s a little bitter sweet since I will be spending my first Christmas and New Year there alone without my family, but I am so looking forward to work.”
