Portrait of Michael Jordan from 2014

Being nervous isn’t bad. It just means something important is happening.

What Michael Jordan says is true. Most of my immigration clients are apprehensive before their visa interviews. I make a point of meeting with them before their assigned appointment to review their respective files as well as offer them insights into what to expect in the interview. I find this exchange helps ease some of their stress, but it is natural to have a case of nerves when the results of the interview are possibly life-altering. As another sports figure Tiger Woods remarked, “If you’re not nervous, it means you don’t care.” I don’t have a client that doesn’t care.
