By Calliope M.
Grade 7, Massachusetts
Country of Origin: Greece

My name is Calliope M. I was born in Athens, Greece on December 15. I emigrated from Greece. I came to the United states of America because there was famine and a strong disease that everyone was getting. My Mom was already in America before I came. The trip to America was very long and tiring because I was in 3rd steerage. I brought with me some toys and a quilt because it smelled like my old home in Greece. School in Greece is alot different from American schools but something stay the same. I am 12 years old now.
