Voices of our Green Card winners:
I didn't even know that my husband Sascha had played in the Green Card Lottery. For him, it was always clear that we were going to immigrate to the USA. I was self-employed in Germany, we had built a good life for ourselves, and were in the process of moving into a new terraced corner house - in other words, really typical German. I had already packed all my boxes when my husband called me from the commuter train. At first, I thought something bad had happened. But then he said, "We won the Green Card!" My first thought was, "Oh shit! We bought new furniture! My business is going great! I have a great job that I love! What am I going to do in America now?" But we took the chance, and it was a huge adventure!
Monique Menesi from Munich
Immigrating to the USA in the middle of the COVID crisis was certainly a very challenging situation. There were additional obstacles that we would not have had to overcome under normal circumstances. But I can only recommend everyone to take it as a challenge. You can immigrate to the US, even during the pandemic. And if you have this dream, do not be discouraged!
Enrico - Green Card winner and former employee of The American Dream
We always had it in the back of our minds: at some point, we want to go to the United States. Of course, we participated in the Green Card Lottery, but you never know in advance: When will you be lucky? It comes all of a sudden and unexpectedly.
I opened the email, and it said "Congratulations!" That made me feel funny at first. And then I went crazy with joy! We had good support through The American Dream. That was the main thing for us as self-employed people: you don't have much time to take care of things on the side. It lifted a burden from us.
Stefan and Stanija Kassek - Green Card winners from Brüggen
The support from The American Dream was essential, especially after the winning notification. The most important thing for me was access to the winner’s community. You can share ideas with all the other winners there: What were their experiences? What is it really like to move to the USA? Which things do you need to consider? It's also very reassuring to hear: It's all relatively easy.
Thomas B. - Green Card winner from Bavaria
I've always been a USA lover. When I signed up for the Green Card Lottery, I had just returned from a Florida vacation. I applied with The American Dream out of joy and excitement. Later, I received the winning notification and didn't believe it at first. I called The American Dream, and the team told me, "Yes, you won!" That was amazing! My advice to anyone who wants to go to the USA: Don't give up!
Noel Karrasch - Green Card winner from Halle/Saale
I would like to thank The American Dream very much. After several attempts I was very lucky to be selected for the Green Card. Now begins a new phase in my life.
I have dreamed of a life in America since I was a small child.
There I want to get to know new people, a new culture and grow personally.
This year I will move to America and start my new life there.
Many thanks dear American Dream Team.
Michael K. - Ruesselsheim, Germany

Petru Lucian N. - Vienna, Austria
I may not have had success in the regular lottery but I won the Green Card Lottery after only one try. A childhood dream comes true which I never expected to become reality - living and working in the USA! Now I live in the the Golden State city San Diego. Thank you TAD for your great support and making my childhood dream come true.
Stev R. - Dresden, Germany
20 years of Green Card Lottery, now "The American Dream" finally worked. Thanks to the great and always committed TAD team in Berlin!
