New York

By Sam .
Grade 2, New York
Country of Origin: Russia

My name is Tuyana. I came to America from Russia in 1994. I came because I wanted to study English and I was the first one in my family to come here.

I brought a few souvenirs with me to remember my country. I got here on an airplane from Moscow to New York. When I got here I had to fill out application forms. When I got here I liked the people, language, culture and technology.

I settled in New York because I have friends here but it was difficult to find a home. In my native country I studied at the university. In America I study English, French, German and I take care of kids. I am happy to live in the United States and especially in New York City because there are many opportunities here and New York has a lot to offer (museums, theaters and other things).
