Jennifer McFadyen is a former writer for ThoughtCo who contributed articles about immigration-related issues for nearly three years. For her, immigration is more than a hot topic; it's a part of her life. A freelance journalist, she began to write about immigration after her own journey—and her misconceptions about the process. She has written on topics that range from whether or not to hire an immigration consultant to how to get a driver's license to what the Dream Act means for future immigrants. She reads widely in the subject, participates in a number of immigration forums, and keeps up with the latest immigration news and laws.
