This year i got asked...

So your'e going back for your third summer do you like it that much? ...of course!

Why do you go back to the same camp? ...i love it there!

And i think that was all for questions. Then the guy was just chatting with me while he finished off my paperwork and then said i was free to go and i'd get my passport back soon :-)

Its really not scarey :-)

I was quite shocked when I was there since everyone get these easygoing questions.

They first asked me what I think about the relationsship between the US and Iran.

And then they asked what I think about the direction Iran have chosen.

woah..I really got nervous.
After this I got visa status unknown, visa sent to the US for further processing. I called them twice, the second time they said my case was special and more than 3 weeks later I finally recieved my visa.
I was quite worried there for a while. I guess this is because of my origin from Iran...but still..

I got asked:
1. Are you Patricia Hewitt's daughter?
to which I answered no, because I'm not! although by the look on the guy's face if I'd have said yes I could see him declining my visa!
2. What camp are you going to?
To which I answered Im still on guarenteed placement! easy!

They asked my boyfriend what he would do if his visa was declined to which he stupidly answered 'I'll force my way in!!' Luckily the guy was nice and took it as a joke! pretty stupid risk though!

My interview went like this.

"So you're at university then, what are you studying?"


"What year?"

"1st - don't worry i can't read your mind just yet"

"Ha, it's probably a good job you can't, what with me being a man in his late fifties. So, where have you been in America before?"


"Where are you going this summer?"

"Not sure yet - i'm on ready, steady, go"

"Ahh ok - ever been arrested?"


"Are you sure?"

"I'm sure"

"OK, that's it, have a great summer!"

Pretty easygoing :D
