When I read about Kauthar and her journy to the United States I thought it would take forever for someone about my own age to get over leaving Africa.To my surprise,the article was all about the advantages, lifestyles,and positive things about how it is here.You can assume that she will always miss her life in Kenya,but her family is with her and she seams happy.This article made me feel a little bit like a jerk for appreciating America less than most immigrants probably would.I bet a lot of immigrated people feel the same way as Kauthar did when she first arrived here.She told of how she was at first uneasy,then a little scared to leave,but in the end she is happy with the United States and the advantages of being an American citizen.
