In Their Own Words: The meaning of citizenship

Newly sworn in U.S. citizens share their experiences.

The United States will celebrate 243 years of independence this year. In honor of the holiday, we revisited our occasional commentary series Own Words and heard from newly sworn-in citizens about what makes this country special to them. They spoke to us shortly after taking their oath of allegiance at a naturalization ceremony at the U.S. District Court in downtown Tucson.
