My name is Ashley Cruz and I was born in Dominican Republic. I am 16 years old. I have lived in Santiago. In school, I like to participate in classes and do my homework and when I am out of school, I like to Go to a program where we spend the summer studying English. I also like to go swimming with my friends and visit my mother back in Dominican Republic. I am particularly good at volleyball, helping others, and doing what I like. I became good at this because so I can teach others what I can do be a good example for them. In the future, I would like to Be someone important in the world and be a role model to students like me I want to be professional, and my favorite careers what I want to be a veterinarian lawyer, or maybe a police officer…
I immigrated to New York one years ago. My life changed in many ways when I immigrated. The change I’m happiest about is because I have new friends and my life gave a very sudden change and very difficult for me but I’m better because here I have more opportunities.On the other hand, I am sad that Because my mother lives there and is far from me and I miss her a lot and because I am not I do not get used to living here very much. Now I speak English and I am learning English which is more difficult for me of the two language I think English because I still do not speak it very well but if I can write in English and enter a little.
There was a time in my life when I experienced injustice an uncle accused him that I violated his daughter but it was not true and they took him to jail and chastised him of what he did not do in my opinion that was unfair because the mother did it for revenge And what he spent time in prison his mother died and took him to his mother’s wake with many policemen.Tags: #immigrant
