Here you are in America. You made it! got the visa, got the pass, passed the intense interview and somehow got enough money for a one way plane ticket. You came in as a freshman or even for your postgraduate degree . You spent the first year or few years enjoying the sights and sounds, studying really hard but also trying to adjust. Before you knew it, BOOM, you are about to graduate. Seems like you looked up and the time allocated for your stay in America is about to come to an end.
You have a mixture of feelings because while you are grateful for the opportunity, the time given was not enough to really tap into your potential. Yes, you are grateful for the visa but you know you still have more to offer. You have this sad feeling because all the dreams and fantasies you had about being successful in America has not happened yet, and in order for it to happen you need more time.
