My name is Jorge, I was born in The Dominican Republic as well as my family. I am seventeen years old. I’ve been living in NY for almost seven years of my life. It was very good that I came to the U.S. When I was smaller because of my education in school and for my better future.

One of my three strengths is that I can ride my bike; I mostly do it when I go to the park with my friends or by myself. Also, I can play baseball and that’s one of the reasons I joined the school baseball team. And lastly, I’m bilingual which means I can communicate in two different languages like talking in school in English and speaking in Spanish in my house with my family or friends.

My family is very big because we have more than five siblings on only my dad’s side of the family and four from my mom’s side of the family. I’m very happy to be here today thanks to them and very happy to be with my big brother too that has helped me a lot since we came to the USA.  And a working goal that I have right now is to bring my mom to the U.S so she can have a better life.

Dear Jorge:
I am moved by your publication, “A little about me” because you share with us things that you are good at, which are significant things for you to be able to achieve new goals every day. There is something that you mention that they brought you to the United States as a child, which also happened to me, but when I was about 11 years old and I only came with my father. My mother had to stay because she couldn’t come. So far my mom is already in the United States and I hope that you can also bring her since you will have a happier time with your family. 

One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “I am bilingual, which means that I can communicate in two different languages, such as speaking English at school and speaking Spanish at home with my family or friends.“I think this is important and admirable because you can now handle two languages ​​at the same time. I liked this sentence as I am also somewhat bilingual but I don’t feel confident that I can speak it naturally at school.

Thank you for your writing. I hope to see what you write next because I would like to know what other achievements you have or if you have already fulfilled them. I hope that your goal of bringing your mom can be fulfilled. It is very nice to have close to the people you appreciate. your.
