I agree with your statement that each individual is unique in their own ways based upon his or her own characteristic traits, their origin, and the personal experiences that shaped who they are. Even with different perspectives of life, one would always belong to his or her ancestors because that 's where the family line started. I also like how you said that all immigrants who goes through Americanization are still a part of their ancestors and relatives. No matter how far one is from his or her family, the family connection would always remain. In my personally life, both of my parent are immigrants but became American citizens soon after.
My immigrant experience started one year ago, during my senior year in high school with my parents we decided that I will go abroad for college. I looked at lots of universities from different countries China, England, United States and Canada. I had a preference for Canada specially Montreal because of the French language we share, on top of that my uncle was living there. However, I did not apply because my father was against that idea, he did not like the weather and convince me to choose United States. I did not have any idea where to go in the United States, I used to spend hours on my laptop looking for universities.
When I first received your letter I was a tad disordered to be completely frank, I had understood things were going fairly smoothly, I comprehend the distance is challenging for me to suitably govern thou. Yet is it really necessary for you to not state these grievances in person? Do you seek me as unreasonable gent, is that why you didn’t do this all face to face? I consider myself to be one of the fairer rulers; back to the matter at hand- If you wish to leave I will not stop you.
My window burst open with a loud thud; a gust of chilly air flew into the dark room, sending stray papers in every direction. A thick beam of moonlight cast eerie shadows across the four walls of my bedroom. Sitting up in my bed, I could see a human-shaped shadow on the carpeted floor. I lifted my eyes to the open window and, although it was dark, I could clearly see the silhouette of a person crouching down to climb through the window. Reaching over, I flipped the switch on the blue lamp standing next to my bed.

When I arrived at the home at 3:30 p.m., Bella was playing with her aunt while her mother was helping her grandmother cook. When I walked into the living room she turned her head and smile at me.

I first moved to Texas and in particular to South Texas on the summer of 2001. Immediately after I got here I enrolled for classes for the Fall Semester at the University of Texas Pan American as an international student. On the morning of September 11, 2001 while I was getting ready for class I watched with horror on television, as many Americans did that day, the terrorist attack that unfolded in New York city, as well as the Pentagon and Pennsylvania. At first, the sheer destruction and the astounding amount of casualties was what I remember vividly, but that event will have a direct effect on me without even knowing it at the moment. You see, when I first came here, I came with a student visa, just like the terrorists that boarded the airplanes that were involved in the terrorist act.
Have you ever been forced to be somewhere where you know you don’t necessarily belong? Fortunately for most people, we are able and allowed to leave this situation whenever we please. Some people aren't as lucky. They are forced to live somewhere where they know they don't belong and these people are never truly happy. However, very few are given a tremendous opportunity to get to live somewhere where they know they will be happier.
I walked into the small cottage kitchen with a bowl of steaming soup, and I saw my grandma and my grandpa sitting amongst my family. They all seemed very controversial today, so I walked to my table with my soup and sat down slowly. Mother looked at me with a sulking expression when I placed my napkin on my lap and started to eat my slightly warm biscuit. “Something very important happened today, my dear.” My mother looked down, as if she were trying to tell herself this was just a dream.
