GET USED TO CARRYING YOUR PASSPORT WITH YOU
Most international students studying in America struggle with some very real — and very common— issues. When I came to the U.S. from Vietnam, I sometimes felt that every day brought endless frustrations that I wasn’t sure how to overcome.
If this happens to you, just remember that you’re not alone. Be strong and hang in there! Talk to your family, friends, professors, counselors — and ask for help and support. I’m positive that you can get through these struggles.
