Adun immigrated to the U.S. and was eager to become
an American citizen after 5 years. He applied for
citizenship; however, his English and his knowledge
of U.S. Civics and History were insufficient to pass
the required citizenship test. He was so discouraged
that he totally abandoned the idea of becoming a
U.S. citizen until he discovered that MSM offered
citizenship assistance. MSM helped Adun to apply for
citizenship again. MSM also worked with Adun to
obtain an application fee waiver and improved his
English proficiency and knowledge of U.S. Civics and
History through classroom lessons, tutoring, and
one-one-one instruction. As a result, Adun passed
the required test and is now a proud U.S. Citizen.
So proud, he applied for a U.S. passport the day
after receiving his U.S. citizenship certificate.
