When I applied for a Cultural Role Player position at Mobius Industries, I was hopeful but unsure I would be offered a job. In January 2013, I got a call from Humaira, a team lead at Ft. Polk, who offered me a place on the next rotation, which would be starting in just a few days. I was excited to get the news, until I realized that my citizenship ceremony fell on a day during the rotation. I had been looking forward to my citizenship ceremony and it was incredibly important to me, but so was the opportunity to work for Mobius. I asked Humaira if it was possible for me to attend both: to work the rotation but leave for one day so that I could also attend my ceremony.
