THE ROAD AHEAD
Aliens with Visas will be back for a second season that will pick up where we've left off, with a focus on two big questions: What does it really mean to be American? What is success - a clearer definition - and more on the unique factors that stand in the way of getting there.
I feel deeply apologetic about the dwindling regularity of content with this season. Social media management, even. This is purely due to AwV being pretty much a one woman show. You know that golden rule - time, money, resources. I took a lot of time due to a lack of the other two, which took a fair toll on me.
This is a self funded project that took about 9 months to finish, which required working 10+ hours each day.
There have been no donations. Every contribution of skill was paid for out of pocket - even if it was a very meagre amount. I would love to build this as a movement to help future batches of international students and I'm even willing to work day jobs to fund my dreams but I worry if I will have the same willpower for 10 more months to work alone for free.
I need your help with Season Two - mostly in marketing and publicity.
My personal views are that money can be funnelled in with the help of a marketing team - even if it's two driven, efficient people. I'd much rather have people volunteering to provide marketing expertise. But who knows, I might have to go against that and launch a Kickstarter or a Patreon page.
