I interviewed myself, but my mom helped me remember how I felt and things about how I immigrated. I immigrated by a plan and my mom said I didn't like it. I was about 2-1/2 years old when I immigrated. I immigrated in 2001 from Russia. When I was immigrating I was scared because I spoke a different language but happy because there would be fun things to do. I was both excited and scared. When I immigrated the weather was very, very cold. The hardest challenge I faced was learning a new language.
