It was 7 in morning
Walking to my school in Ecuador, the last day for me
All my friends in class talking between them
A lot a noisy could hear in the class
Feeling so sad that day
Telling my friends that I’m going to travel to New York
“We are so sad right now, we don’t want you to go to another country.”

Saw everything around me
Feeling sad, my dad said to me
“I understand but this is a opportunity for a better future for you and sister”
All in New York was new for me
See the train for the first time ever
A  lot of people in there
Could heard people speak English 

Feeling nervous
Taking the train to go to my school
See my new school for the first time
A lot of students 
They working with computers
A lot of noise in every class
“You’re new in the country, right?”
