Help Dermatology in my home country VS. IM in US

Hello all.First of all I would like to thank everybody for this awesome forum.
I would like to take your opinion regarding this dillema:

Iam an international graduate who got accepted in Dermatology residency program at my home country BUT my dream is to do residency and live my life is the U.S.
I known that its nearly impossible to match into Derma in US esp as an IMG,so Iam thinking of quiting derm in my home country and apply for IM residency in US.
My dream is Derm but also IM is ok with me.

Should I risk quiting derm and do whatever possible to get into IM in US?
Or should I take derm and give up the dream of,living and working in US?

Your advice is highly appreciated.
