This Autobiography is about my life. First I tell background information about my life. Then I explain about my experience immigrating to the U.S. Last t will talk about my life living in the U.S. My name is GOKU. I am 15 years old. My favorite sports are soccer and basketball. I like to dance, hear to music and be with my friends in my free time. I am Mexican. My favorite food is enchiladas. I have two brothers. They like the same things as me like soccer and dance and I am looking for girlfriend. When I came to the U.S I was 11 years old, I was scared because I didnĂt know what was going on. My father and I crossed illegally in the desert. We came to look for my mom. I met a man who gave us food and water because we were walking for 3 days in the desert and it was hot. We didnĂt bring food, because the coyote didnĂt tell us. When we got on the Airplane from Arizona to Chicago I was happy because I was going to see my mom. Now I live here in Chicago for 3 years with my mom. I Šam student in H.S. now I speak English. I donĂt like the weather because in the winter you have to wear a lot of clothes. I like the summer because I go out to the lake or to the swimming poll. Everything is different like the houses and the food. I want to go back to Mexico to study for doctor or I want to be a pro soccer player.
