Mr. Sisavanh Onedara is 66 years old and has been living in the US for 30+ years. He came as a Lao refugee and became a permanent resident. This is his first time voting and he was so excited to share the moment he mailed his ballot with FIRM and all of you. Mr. Onedara received his citizenship last year through FIRM, after attending ESL Citizenship classes with Ms. Vicki, studying hard, applying, passing the test, completing the interview and being accepted.
We celebrate Mr. Onedara and every other first time voter in this important election.
