Hi my name is Bob I came from Jamaica.

I was born in 2001.

I came to Ammarcia because me and my family wanted a better life.

On the boat it was vary crowded and I got sick. Only a few people spoke my language. when we got to Ellis island there was cheering from everyone.

When we got off the ship there were officials everywhere.they asked us hard questions in a language I hardly understood! Then one day the officials called our name we could go!

When we got to the city life was busy. There were people everywhere and it was really loud. But we got settled in fast.

the end
