    hi to everyone!! Little introduction about me: I am on H4 visa,since 4 months.I have completed my B.E in Electronics and communication from India.i was working with IT software industry in India, before marriage and have a work experience of 2.5 years. Seriously,H4 Visa has strange ways of driving a person insane....:) Im giving my best shot trying all ways to kill my time @ home ..but, I want to make proper use of my skills and education. Please help me find a way to start earning for my skills and education..any ideas? I would also love to start with a bit of volunteering too... Well... currently i am put up in Bellevue :)

    Hi Shomini.. join the bandwagon. I share almost a similar story :). I am not sure, about work options as we are on H4 but there is a place called Gurukul.Its basically a volunteer organization for teaching Hindi for the Indian community children. Its run by indians and it happens on Sunday in Interlake School, Bellevue. So you could volunteer as a substitute hindi teacher or help in their administrative work etc.
    I am planning to start that from the following sunday, so you could join in too.. Its just a good way of meeting people, so planning to do that :)

    So how do you spend time at home? Made any new friends!
    Are we the only newbies to Seattle? Where are others???
