Starting on the first day I arrived at the kennedy international airport in new york and I had no one to pick me up.

Several times during those initial years, I wanted to return home to Cameroon even though my family supported me from home financially and morally.
Starting middle school challenges any kid transitioning into a teenager. Simple small changes like going from cubbies to lockers excite students. Bigger changes like transitioning from one all day class to six individual classes and pluses and minuses to letter grades can leave some students shell-shocked with new responsibilities.
