''I'd be lying if I said nothing had changed in my life. Most of my colleagues in Ghana are still unemployed, and those employed earn around GH¢1800. Every two weeks, I get $25 per hour and $2500.
''I make around $5000 after taxes and pay $700 in rent. After aiding the family in Ghana, I've resolved to save $3000 per month,'' he said.
Eric was among three of more than 10,000 students who won the Diversity Visa Lottery with the help of his Ghanaian school authorities.
About the US Diversity Visa Programme
Per the BBC, the US Diversity Visa Programme, also known as the Green Card Lottery, began in 1994 to encourage immigration from countries under-represented among new arrivals to the US. To be eligible, applicants must have a high school education or the equivalent and two years of professional experience.
