About Me:


Thanks for visiting my website. I hope the information here helps you succeed as an international student and in your future career search.

My name is Dylan and I live in the State of Minnesota, located in the northern end of the United States. I've lived here for several years and work in Computer Networking for one of the largest Telecom companies in America. I've been successful in my career and very happy with how things turned out. This is the American dream as I imagined it.

However things were not always that way. I came to the U.S. as an international student without much money and no family connections. I was the first in my family to come to the US. I therefore had to start from scratch in a foreign country, which as you can imagine, was quite a difficult transition.

I remember the fear and panic I felt the first day I landed in Denver, Colorado in the middle of winter and thinking to myself "God, will I survive this?". Luckily, I had an American host family who picked me from the airport and housed me at their home for a few days. I am forever grateful to them for their kindness.

I later moved South and completed my Masters Degree at the University of Texas at San Antonio, then moved North to Minnesota and attended several community colleges.

I didn't have the right information hence made a lot of mistakes along the way but I succeeded in the end, unlike many others who fail to achieve their goals and end up frustrated.

I therefore decided to create this website to provide other prospective international students with the information they need to succeed, so they don't make the mistakes many other international students make.

I hope this information is helpful and I will continue to update it often.

Thanks you.

Dylan Kioga.
