The first effect of coming to America is that I learned the English language. This was another challenge for me because I had never tried to learn a language before. I knew I had to learn it before entering the university so I went to the English school for one year when I came to the US. If I had not traveled to study abroad I
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.
People from all over the world came to the US for many reasons, and with them came their culture. The US is considered today as a place where, for the most part, all people and cultures are accepted. This can all be traced back to the immigrants that came to the US in the late 1800s. These people brought their customs and traditions to the US and allowed the people to really experience how other people around the world live. Foods, religions, governments, and ideals are just some of the many thing immigrants brought to the US that overall made the US a much more complex country.
Every person in America is different in some way. We all go through life in varying manners, some choose to challenge the everyday laws, others cling to the authority hoping not to get noticed, we have different jobs, go to different schools, live in different neighborhoods, some of us have hundreds of family members, and some have none, theres no telling the situation. So the question in general is hard to answer because every American has a different view of living in america. Some people see it as shameful to live in such a cruel country, some are proud to be a part of something that is constantly evolving, there are endless feelings towards America and all are found in the people of this country. What does it mean to be an American?
When I first moved to this country I was two years old and clueless of my surroundings. However, as I grew up I became more observant of those who surrounded me, and more importantly, the differences between me and others. My first reaction was always to be ashamed or sad that I was the outcast, unable to relate to certain
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.
Q: How did you get to the USA? A: We arrived in the beautiful city of Chicago, IL on July 3rd, 2002 by airplane. Q: What are some of the obstacles you faced? Elaborate on your experience. A: The main obstacle was obviously the language since I didn't know how to speak English.
My family has always been very united but one day my dad emigrated to America, I was 5 years old and missed him a lot because I thought he was missing out so many important events of my childhood and all the new things I was going through, but he would always tell me that one day I would come to America and I remember I would get very content about it but as I was growing up I was making new friends, meeting new people and “living life” that I forgot about the idea of coming to America. As years were passing by, my family began to tell me that I had to enjoy every second in my country since it was probably my last year in Honduras and I believed it at first but then it never happened so I was so busy with school that I never thought the day would come. It was July 31, 2013, when I realized that the day my family and I has been waiting for had come. I and felt so different and I knew something was about to change in my life, though I was unsure of what it was I did have an idea of what it could be. “The day has come” I whispered.
In conclusion, in the United States of America there is many information that immigrant should know before moving to the land of opportunity. The reason is that it will benefit them to be able to understand how the American culture work. The food in America are one of a kind. Americans name things differently than other countries. Money in America is used in many different ways.
I locked myself in place and turned around as the faint sound of a motorcycle got louder and closer to me by the second. Before I had any time to react, I felt someone jostle me to the side of the road as I heard a WWHHOOOSSSHHHH speed right past us!!!! As I toppled onto the hard gravel road, I spread my hands in front of me to use them as guards to protect my face. Pain rushed up my palms when my hands made contact with the sharp and rocky road. Luckily, I didn't get hurt severely.
