Im an Italian citizen. I will have to spend 3 month (90 days) in a illustration studio based in washington. I will follow the work and gain some practical experience, working with computers programs.
I will not be paid by any US source for this training and i will also attend a conference in Philadelphia.
Can this situation be considered into the criteria of elegibility found for VWP
"attend a scientific, educational, professional, or business convention or conference. attend short-term training (you may not be paid by any source in the United States with the exception of expenses incidental to your stay)"
Will I be safe, if asked from an officer, to say the truth?
Any help is welcome.
