Rebecca Ya Mu, a Karenni native of Burma, is a new U.S. citizen.

Attaining U.S. citizenship is not easy, and it’s become even more difficult in recent years. But have you ever considered the challenges to citizenship if you are an immigrant or refugee? The language difficulties (with no accommodations), the cultural competency, the lack of context when trying to understand historic narratives… The list goes on.

That’s why we are so darn proud of our seniors who study basic literacy, ESL, take more classes, take practice tests, and eventually become U.S. citizens. Just to offer you a taste of what it takes to gain access to the liberties so many of us take for granted, please try your hand at this sample test.
