Grade 8, Maryland
Country of Origin: Slovenia

I came to America from Slovenia in 1995 because my dad got a job here. My dad came before I did because of job related reasons. I was kind of nervous on my flight to America, but I did enjoy the flight.

My first impression of America was that it was very big and the people were very polite. Since I am staying for four years, I brought everything I own with me. In America I am a student at The Woods Academy, and I am on the soccer team.

The schools in Slovenia are much harder than in America. The teachers are also more strict! In Slovenia, I played soccer and skied. I also liked to work on computers.
