She expressed her honor in participating in the ceremony and emphasized the significance of the venue and the transformative moment for the individuals becoming Americans.

“Becoming an American citizen comes with responsibility,” began Melania Trump.

“It means actively participating in the democratic process and guarding our freedom,” she continued.

“It also means leading by example and contributing to our society,” said the former First Lady.

“It is a life-altering experience that takes time, determination, and sometimes even tremendous strength,” cautioned Trump.

Adding, “You are now a part of a nation with a rich history of progress, innovation, and resilience.”

“The pathway to citizenship is arduous,” confessed the Slovenian-American.

“I was born and raised in the picturesque country of Slovenia where my parents taught me the importance of strong work ethic and pursuing my dreams,” she said.

“The values they instilled in me at an early age inspired my fashion and modeling career and brought me to the beautiful cities of Paris and Milan. While working internationally, it had its shares of rules and regulations. It was not until I moved to New York City in 1996 that the system truly tested my determination,” she continued.

“Quickly, my life turned into a labyrinth of organizing paperwork,” she admitted.

“Patience and perseverance became my constant companions,” recalled Trump.

“For me, reaching the milestone of American citizenship marked the sunrise of certainty. At that exact moment, I forever discarded the layer of burden connected with whether I would be able to live in the United States. I hope you have similar feelings of comfort right now.”

Trump shared that becoming a U.S. citizen provided her with “a tremendous sense of pride and belonging.”

“Stand your ground and embrace the opportunities that lie ahead. You are American,” she proclaimed.
