My name is Haydee Diaz. I am 15 years old.  It is important to know that I’m very timid,
but when you get to know  me, I can be friendly. I respect all people and I don’t like to do dangerous things, like talk to strange people. I was born in Dominican Republic. I have lived  in  Provincia Monseñor Noel (Bonao), Santo Domingo. In school, I like to go to gym class, see movies about the class, and I like go to math tutoring. When I am out of school, I like to go to spend time with my friends and family, play volleyball and go to the cinema. I am particularly good  at  singing because I like to sing. In the future, I would like to be a pediatrician because I love the babies. I dream of  being a good singer and cook or chef.

I immigrated to New York one year ago. My life changed in many ways when I immigrated.
The change I’m happiest about is that I can go to the school because here I have good grades. About education I’m doing better here, I learn more. On other hand, I am sad that I’m not with my family and my best friend. Now I speak English and Spanish, which means in the future I can a good career or better opportunities to study.
