My name is Tracy; I am 20 years old now. I came to the United States on June19, 2006. I came with my mother, father and brother. We came to the US because I wanted experience the new country, study more English, finish high school then go to college so I can get a good job and make more money in the future.
I prepared to come to the US with my family and we brought baggage. I felt behind friendship, kindness and the love of the hometown. In the U.S., I expected I could study English better and have a good life. I also expected I could go to other places to travel. I wanted to enjoy new life.
When I arrived in the United States, I went to school to prepare entrance documents. When I came to school, I felt very strange and afraid because I saw different colored people and speak different languages. First, my English is not good, only so-so. After two weeks, my relative went with me to Six Flags. This place is very amazing and different games are played. People felt up. I am afraid of the course of playing it seems I fly in the sky. I was so excited as to cry at that time, but in a good mood and very happy. I went on a roller coaster, superman and water paradise, I felt funny. There, I experienced new environment and I went to visit relatives and changed for a better life.
But about my new home, I did not like because it is so good in my imagination not to have, I felt ok. In the future, I want to go to the college and get a good job.
