Hi, my name is David B and in May 2017 I was selected for further processing in the 2018 Diversity Visa Lottery.
I’m from Sydney Australia, work in communications and media, and have over 15 years as a senior journalist and editor. Right now I’m working for Government and hope to stay in the strategic communications industry once I make the big move.
I thought I’d start this blog to share my experiences of the DV Lottery process and my (hopeful) move to the USA in 2018. There’s some amazing sites already out there (see my Useful Links section) but I thought my experience could add another voice to assist those facing such a daunting, scary and exciting life journey.
Please feel free to comment, ask questions and leave your experiences in each post – by sharing our questions, concerns and insights I hope to create a resource that people might find a bit useful.
