I was so excited to meet all kinds of new people and play the game we all love, but I never thought it would be as challenging as it has been for me this year.

The American experience is not unfamiliar to me, I have been visiting America since I was a child and as a child I always wanted to move to America.

But since I did not know anyone except my great aunt Maria, I was so scared and I honestly did not know what or who to expect. All I knew was that the couple had three kids; a one year old, a two year old, and a twelve year old.
