Thanks to you all. I appreciate.

Leaving Nigeria wasnt an easy decision. I got my Visa on the third attempt. If dressing is a criteria for issuing Visa, I would be denied that day. God bless lagosismyhome, She reviewed my mock Visa interview Transcript and every question came out with already prepared answers.

I flew Turkish airline, reported to school and left 6 months after due to financial reasons but that is not what I'm discussing here for now.

I found myself in Ohio thinking about the next phase of life.. I was out of status and going back home is NO. I have to move forward. I was fortunate to live white neighborhood and where white see no reason not to date a black guy and never experienced racism, so I blended in quickly.

Cool, crazy women have all come my way but I never let the pressure of regularizing my stay took advantage of me or else I would have entered into the wrong marriage.

Let me say your Host determines how far you go in life. My host tried his best but as a "guy" that I am, I dont take advice from people who has not been in my situation before. He came here through dv lottery, I came with F1.. The contant threat of Trump never got to me because I was rest assured police will never stop me to ask for my immigration status but I am focused and I gave myself a time frame to get my situation fixed.

Long story short, I found myself in Chicago through marriage and the rest was history today..

I read on a thread that if you are a lizard in Nigeria, You cant turn to a lion in America. Well, different stories for different people. I'm not a lion in america but I'm nowhere a lizard.

When I log into my Nigeria bank accounts, the smile will just come. You can imagine looking at your account balance and smiling.

My friends says I dont wear roca wears, designer clothes but hey, I'm comfortable with my oldnavy wears. He said I dont dress flashy. Well, i am not in America to use my dressing to impress people. I'm comfortable with my causal wear. Keep living American dream through designer wears while you eat $3 burgers while I dress casual and eat nice African food while smiling to the banks..

The woman that prepares my local/Nigeria food came in 3 years ago with her husband and they just bought their house(Cash). Im not sure if Husband is legal but wife is not. They came in 2016.

If you are a lizard in Nigeria and you are not lazy, You will surely make it in America. Hard work pays in America.

Dont surround yourself with people with negative mind, no ambition. I move with people that has vision as me and I'm more of a listener than talker.

I am not where I'm going but I'm not where I used to be. Truthfully, if I am in Nigeria, i wont even have this kind of comfort but to God be the Glory.

I had been dreaming of walking in the street of America since university days but here I am today.

I had never turn people down here no matter their immigration status. I had always helped in the little way I can and I will still helping because who accommodated and fed me in Ohio never knew my parents yet he helped me with no money given to him.

Next trip is Mexico, Canada then Nigeria. God help me

If you can dream it, You can achieve it and You will achieve it.

This is just to encourage someone to be focused and determined.

Yes, you do fall out of status.

So either you return back to school to re-instate you legal status to remain legal in the US or you marry very quickly for green card to remain in legal status in the US.

It depends on what you leave school for. Do you mean drop out or just a temporary leave? If you drop out, then yes, you're out of status. But if you leave for reasons such as medical (medical leave), then you are not out for status. For a medical leave to be granted, you need a doctor's report, and the maximum duration for which you can be granted a medical leave is one year. Endeavor to do your best not to fall out of status, because it doesn't always end well like in the story of the person you quoted.
