Country of Origin: Mexico

My name is Lorena.I was born in ''GUANAJUATO''',Mexico. My dad came to the U.S.A. before I was born. He came to the USA to work and first lived in California. I came two years ago. I crossed the border in a van. My dad drove the van. In the van was my brother Antonio, my sister Alejandra,my mom ,my dad and myself. The reason I came to the U.S.A. is because my dad wanted to be with us,and so that I can know how to speak,read and know English. I miss Mexico.
