Grade 7, Maryland
Country of Origin: France

I came from France to work in America. My grandfather came to America before the first World War looking for adventure. He stayed for about ten years. I was very happy on my trip to America, but I didn't understand the language very well.

I was very impressed by the size of America. I had an openess to all ideas.

I did bring some special things to America with me. I brought four chairs and a case of French red wine. They were given to me as wedding gifts from my family.

In France, I was in the French military in the Ivory Coast, Africa. In America I am the manager of Telecommunications for the World Bank.
