“I came here a couple of years ago and it’s been a sort of long journey, but it’s been so much fun.  When I came back from Mexico a couple of things were new.  I went to school and made new friends.  I also had to re-learn English.”

“I am from Japan And I came here on August 12 so I’ve been here for a little over a month.  I am shy, but I could make friends.  American people are so friendly and that’s why I have friends.  And all things here are big like the roads, water bottles, and food.”

“I went to Libya five years ago and when I got there I was excited and nervous.  The school I went to was only for females and so I was comfortable and I made a lot of new friends.  When I got there I already knew the language so it wasn’t that hard for me to communicate with people.”  

Lalo Lopez, 12

“I came to the US at the beginning of this year in January. It’s been good, it’s been so much fun, and I’ve made a lot of new friends being here.”
