“I got my citizenship and then you have to apply for the passport and then you get it in the mail a few weeks later,” Milans said in a video. “And it wasn’t until I held it in my hands that I thought, ‘I can now vote. I can finally vote and make sure that I can put my two cents to fight to make this country better than what it is now.'”
“So, we will make it,” she added. “I have faith. I love this nation very much.” (RELATED: This Flag Means ‘Everything’: Immigrant Who Served In The Army Becomes US Citizen On Veterans Day)
Milans first posted the news in March.

I am now a proud American citizen. I am so grateful to this wonderful country… for all the opportunities it has gifted me during all these years. I came here as a young girl with a dream and i worked hard .. and it happened. The American dream exists. For all of you out there with a dream , don’t ever ever ever ever give up because dreams do come true. I ❤️ you America ???????? #iamoneluckygirl ????????
“I am now a proud American citizen,” she captioned the post. “I am so grateful to this wonderful country… for all the opportunities it has gifted me during all these years. I came here as a young girl with a dream and i worked hard .. and it happened.”
“The American dream exists,” she added.
This is what you love to see. A celebrity who truly loves this nation. You can’t want to change something and do it constructively without really caring about it. Her comments are such a contrast to the usual “America sucks” style comments we see from people who criticize the country.
Milans talked about fighting to make this country better than it is now and I think that’s a cause we can all get behind.
