Isabella Tobias receives the Lithuanian citizenship
A surprising move by the Lithuanian President:
“The president also took into her consideration the fact that Tobias has been practicing with Stagniunas, a Lithuanian citizen, for three-and-a-half years, also learning the Lithuanian language, having passed an examination of the Lithuanian language and involved in the Lithuanian community in the US.” said the President’s Office.
What a great news!! So happy for Tobias/Stagniunas!

Well Done Isabella. She definitely had to work for this citizenship. Keeping up with the skating as well as having to immerse herself into Lithuanian Culture and the language.
Don't let her looks or her family wealth fool you. This young woman displays intelligence, perseverance and determination.
A very well deserved reward for her hard work- and even better for Deividas!

Great news. I'm glad it finally came through for her.
ITA. Had a chance to speak with her and Deividas at last year's Skate America. Happy for them both. She has certainly worked hard to meet all Lithuania's requirements for citizenship.
