My name is Yun Xin. You can call me Canly. I am from China, but now I live in New York. When I was 17, I came to the United States. At that time, my parent and I to came here.
In China, many people said the United States is a good and rich country. So, I came
to the U.S to get more education and learn English to have a good life. When I was in China, I thought the United States is a beautiful city, have fresh air and good environment (the clean city) and many immigrants from different countries, the say different languages. When I knew I must leave China, I made more money to save, bought some cold weather clothes and told my friends I would leave China. But some things I left behind when I left China, such as my childhood photos, my childhood toys and my birthday gifts.
When I arrived in the United States, I went to my new home, went to see the sea and went to my new high school. I learn English and other subjects, take more photos in the U.S., and eat some American food. When I arrived in the U.S. I felt this city have poor transport (terrible), and sad, because I left the friends. Also, I am busy, because I have a lot of homework and housework to do. It is not as beautiful a country and not as clean a city and the transportation is not as good as I expected.
I love my home very much, I feel happy when I have new home. Also, I love my family. Maybe I will do trade in the future.
