"Intro to America" project?

Hi y'all!
Jana here, Nerdfighter hailing from the Czech Republic, currently living in Connecticut!

So I got this semblance of an idea for a project that could be real fun and hopefully address some worldsuck. Lately, John and Hank have been talking a lot about immigration and belonging and making new places feel like home (what with this election, amirite...) I've also been doing lots of reflecting on my own life - how having lived in the States for 4 years and looking at 4 more, trying to make a life here but desperately clinging to the life I have (had..?) back at home, etc etc.

Long story short, I thought it might be cool to see if some fellow foreign Nerdfighters living in the US would be interested in sharing experiences of their life here - presumably with the goal of allowing people who are looking to move to the US to get a better understanding of what's ahead, or just for folks looking to learnt about lives of others in this country. This could maybe be a YouTube channel (I have no experience with this) or a blog (same) or something entirely different. It could also contain just about anything - talking about adjusting to operating in a foreign language, culture shocks of all sorts from public transit through groceries to just navigating any darn building (ok, sliding windows are a stuff of nightmares, and why are the keyholes upside down?!) It would also be great to get a wide range of experiences, right? (I'm a white straight cis woman from Central Europe, who's only lived on the East Coast and only been out of college and in the workforce for about a month - not an all-encompassing experience)

Anyways! If you'd be interested in talking through some of this, please let me know! (I guess in the comments...? First time posting, I'm entirely defficient)

    This seems really cool. However, I live in and was born in the US, so I can't give a story. This project seems very interesting though, so if there's a way I can help let me know!
