My mom, Renata S. has lived in the United States for 12 years. She was born in Warsaw, Poland. Poland, she says has lots of trees, the people are nicer and the food is cheaper and tastier. She decided to come to America only because she thought it would have more opportunity. She is now living in Newark, New Jersey. She has seen many changes came to America. One of the changes she saw was there are more cars. Another change is higher prices on gas, less jobs and food is more expensive. She has also lived in Jersey City, NJ and in North Carolina. She would like to live in Pennsylvania because of its forests and because it's clean. She has traveled to twenty states by car. Her favorite place was Yellowstone, Wyoming because it had many animals.
