Gulia and Judge Susan Dlott at Naturalization Ceremony

Recently we were over at the Federal Court House in downtown Cincinnati for the Naturalization Ceremony. It was a very moving event as there were people from all over the world, all with their own story, all becoming  U.S. citizens.  I met Gulnara Almukametova six years ago the day after she arrived here. I was so excited to meet a real live Tatar! A few years later Becky and I went to visit her hometown of Bakali. It is only one of the most wonderful places on earth. Gulia has always been a hard worker. These days she is selling cars and going to college. I am very proud of her.
