I would like to share this with you: Be confident and know what your documents say and tell the truth.
This is an unusual case where Rege had to visit usa for an Interview. In a USA Visa application/interview it is very very important that you do not lie, Counselors are experts and will figure out if someone is lying about the reason of going.
Also, Rege’s tip about knowing your documents is very important. USA Visa Counselor expect you to be well prepared with documentation and more.
