I came with my father and my sisters. I came to the U.S. to study English and for my father to find a job. When I came to the U.S. I missed my family. I came on airplane to the border and then I walked 8 hours in the desert. I was afraid because was during the night. I arrive in Arizona and later I arrive in car to Chicago. I have 3 years living in the U.S. I like the U.S. I like the weather. For example I like the snow because I go out side to play in the snow.
