Getting through Ellis Island was very hard. I had to get multiple tests and everythin! I almost didn't make it. I was marked ft for feet problems but I know I don't have problems with my feet. I was just sore from waiting and walking around on the boat so much. I had to sit down about 5 times when I was getting asked questions because I wasn't doing that well. It took me a total of 6 tries to pass. It also took me about 13 hours to get through all the tests and get into America!
