    Hello, my name is Valeriya.
    I live in Russia currently, but want to move to the USA soon (it's my dream country).
    I want to chat with different people on any topics. I'm always open to communication and not against to share with experience ☺️

    Hi, and welcome to the forums. I don't want to disrespect your dream honey, but the USA is NOT a dream country. Think about Canada instead.

    True, but depending on which state you're in it can be a lot better or a lot worse.

    That's true aikorose, I'm lucky to live in a very liberal and open minded city - not sure about the rest of the state though. But we're all stuck with one dumbass for a president, and Justice has become a terrifying "business" in most every state.

    Honestly, Canada is included to my dream. I just don't know where is better to go. Plus, it's complicated to move to the USA or Canada being a russian resident. You understand this stuff about visa, legal documents, where to live and work..Maybe I'll concentrate my attention on the internship (but it's also hard to find). Anyway, believe me, almost every young person (and not only) wish to move from Russia where liberalism is. That's why I think states are much better in comparison with my county.

    The US seems to be becoming less liberal by the day. that's why I suggested Canada. A lot of people from the US would like to move to Canada.

    It's the government I see as becoming more and more restrictive of peoples rights and freedoms. I think you're right though about some institutions overreacting.

    Hi there. Love your name; "Valeriya". It's reminiscent of an old hollywood sword and sorcery movie. If I may ask, is there a history to it?

    Strong, brave, and healthy - I like that. Good name. Besides, it has a nice ring to it.
