I moved to Okinawa when I was eight months old and left when I was thirteen years. Upon my move I started my first year of high school in a place where I knew not a single person nor thing, similar to how my parents started their thirteen journey abroad. Walking through the entrance of my new school, all my preconceived notions about the school went out the window. The roaring in my ears muffled all the excited chatter as I worked my way through the dense crowd and up the dual staircase, stumbling on few steps. Waiting for the bell to ring to signal the start of the day, I came to realize that I was going to be on my own for a while, and that it would be for the better.
I moved once before, and that was hard because I had so many friends, I was little then so I didn’t have a phone and neither did they so I haven’t talked to them since sixth grade.

I started a new book out of the one already in progress, same character, but a new story. I started making friends and gaining confidence and I lost a lot of weight.

I remember I was a forthcoming freshman when I underwent an unfortunate immigration odyssey.

This unfortunate event did not only reflect itself on my footwear--it also shattered the pink colored glasses I saw life through. The day my stepfather left impulsively to the impoverished ranch in Durango, Mexico that he grew up in, the odyssey formed.
Elementary school is an environment where we start off as juvenile, inventive kids and leave as awkward procrastination prone teenagers. We morph into these people and stay that way for a while until high school the place where we can find our roadway in which we will continue for the rest of our lives. On September 5th, 2006, I began my very first day of elementary school, like many of the other kids starting their first day of school, I was nervous and I didn’t want to leave my parents side but eventually, I did and so did everyone else. I was an only child for about 6 years of life and I didn’t participate in anything that would acquire new friendships or skills, so, in terms of a social life, I didn’t have one. I was reliant on my parents for everything from making food to doing my homework they were there for me.

Living their home country just so my siblings and I could get a better education and better life. As we all know, life in America is not that easy when you are newbies. As an 11 years old kid, I wouldn't know what to do or how to help my parents when they are going through a tough time. All I do was go to school, come home, and do some reading. Besides, school wasn't that easy for me because I didn't know English and I couldn't communicate with the people around me nor the teachers.

My life was changing for the worst as far as I was concerned, and I didn 't know how to change it for the better. Seventh and eighth grade were the same.
