My name is Taylor and I am Korean. My parents are Korean, but my brothers and I were born in Australia. I lived half of my life in Korea. We all moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in America nine months ago. We moved here because my mom's job was transferred here.
The things I do after school are still the same in both Korea and America. I play the piano and do origami.
I was only a little nervous about moving because I was worried about how I was going to make friends and improve my English. I didn't know anything about what my new life would be like. I was scared. I had never seen this place before. My oldest brother likes it here because he speaks English well. My little brother is not as happy because he does not speak as well and he has trouble doing his homework.
My father, grandmother, and cousin are still in Korea, and I miss them. I keep in touch with them through Skype.
Everything here is different. In Korea, I eat Korean food, but here I eat steak and hamburgers. My favorite American food is macaroni and cheese.
I learned about trick-or-treating on Halloween. My mother bought me a costume, but it was too big so I handed out candy at home. In Korea, we celebrate Children's Day, which is not a holiday here in the United States. Children's Day is on May 5. Children get to stay home from school, rest, and spend time with their parents.
The things I do after school are still the same in both Korea and America. I play the piano and do origami. My favorite subjects in school are math and social studies.
I like math because I'm good at it. I like social studies because I like to learn things about history.
I like American schools much better. I have lots of friends here. I have learned that America is a big and good place. The people here are kind and have been very good to me.
