It was me with my mother, my girlfriend and her sister in one car, the rest of her family went into another separate car which was her mother, brother and sister in law. It was quite a drive, jamming to the music with the volume all the way it could possibly reached. We were having uncontrollable laughs and jokes, making small pit stops for food, it was a great six-hour drive. Finally, we had reached our destination, with so much to do and so little time.The first stop we took was to unload at the hotel and freshen up for a quick lunch with the family. Even though it was not late in the day, we were all still hurried to eat.
Recently we went on a holiday to America which is quite different if you’re from South Africa. It is definitely one of the most outstanding trips we’ve been on as a family but what made I stand out, what made it the best holiday I’ve ever been on? Well for starters it was the first time my parents had taken us overseas they had been about seven years earlier but now it was with all seven of us. You’re never lonely when you have four siblings there’s always something happening. My mom was worried at the airport that one of us would get lost but for us kids it’s a blast being in a new place, seeing new things and hearing different accents.
The second my mom asked me what kind of transportation I would use to get to South Carolina, I could feel myself starting to sweat and I felt like the room was spinning around me. I realized that I had to get over my fear of heights and flying soon. The trip I was so eager for had turned into one I was dreading to go on. I did not know what I was suppose to do considering Skyler had been on multiple flights. All the parents scheduled a meeting that addressed the different questions people had.
It was my Senior year of High school when my parents decided to send me on a mission trip to Central America. All my friends were flying out to the Turks and Caucus and I was on a plane to Nicaragua. I would be there for 10 days and would be building houses and helping the needy. I was not at all excited to be going and had rather been with my friend enjoying the islands. I would soon come to realize that Nicaragua would teach me three lesson that would stay with me forever: how to live fully, that material needs are not everything, and that living for Christ is everything.
“If you don't get the basics down tonight, you’ll have to do this tomorrow also.” My mom went to America because of the American dream and more opportunity She arrived in America at Oregon during 1991 after leaving Vietnam. After losing her brother and all of her family’s belongings, she had to start all over in America but it was only going to get better from there, because she was
In 2013 my parents told me we were moving to United States at first I didn't want to come, I had my life already done there I have many friends all my family living near I could go and visit them when I wanted, then I start realizing that it would be a good idea to get to know a different country and other people. When I got here my thoughts were that it was going to be so difficult to get used to a new place, but actually it wasn’t. I went to many parts of the country my favorite was Las Vegas everything was beautiful there. I got to visit my family and go to other states that is one of the things I will never regret for coming to a new country. One of the things that was most difficult for me was to get used to the food it tastes different specially tortillas, cheese, corn, beans and ham but also here the food tastes really good, food that I had never tasted where I live before.
Coming to America The most critical event of my life was November 11, 2013 the first time I boarded an airplane to the United States of America. It was the scariest but happiest time of my life experiencing it with my father and sister. I was afraid of heights, so there were times when I told my father I was too afraid to board a flight. I never actually imagined myself boarding a plane owing to the rigorous processes in acquiring a United States visa. I was extremely happy to celebrate with my dad and sister.
Raised all my life in Puerto Rico and then transferring to America was a great challenge. I had to overcome various difficulties in order to adapt to new ideas, cultures, and lifestyles. One of the obstacles I encountered was adapting to school. Since I was five my parents wanted me to imbibe the English language in order to have an exceptional future filled with opportunities, but when I arrived all my hard work in learning English did not seem to matter at my middle school. I arrived in this country thinking I was going to be in the most challenging classes and be at the top but reality smacked me in the face the first day I entered eighth grade.
From that moment I knew that I have to become an engineer. Ten years after the moment when my father left El Salvador, my mother, my brothers and I came to the United States to be together with my father as a complete family again. Hurtful it was for me to leave an entire life in Central America, my customs, and plans for my life, just to come to a new country to begin a new life. Starting from zero was not easy, and at the beginning I was absolutely frustrated because when I came to the United States, the school decided to delay two years, due to I did not know English, they set me in 10th grade, when in El Salvador I was in 12th grade. Learning English was one of the
The dedication, awareness, and hard work I had for this event is what makes me think I could be the best candidate for this job. My marketing manager came up to my associates and I to tell us that we have been put in charge of increasing ticket sells in the month of September. The Braves did not have the best record in Major League Baseball at the time, therefore tickets are harder to sell towards the end of the year when there is no chance of playoffs. My associates and I took nine days to figure out that we would like to have a guest singer come to the stadium. We had twelve days to pick an artist.
Luckily, I had met a girl from Hannibal who was also attending the congress meeting and it seemed like all my nerves and worries disappeared and I was ecstatic to get on that plane and get to Boston. When we arrived we were split up and put in different resident halls. So I made my way to my hall and spent a good thirty minutes looking for my room. Once I met my roommates, we made our way to the meeting spot. The line to get into the stadium was at least a mile long.
