Who is Cristhian?

Hola mi gEnTe!   >>>   I’m Cristhian, also known as “Crispidey.” I’m a college student at Berkshire Community College. I was born in Bogota, Colombia. I like to play sports (Soccer is my favorite), learn about computers, listen to music, read Spanish literature, and hang out with my friends. As many of you, I didn’t know ANY English when I came to the United States. My life in this country began when I was 14 years old. Although the first Americans I met where nice people, I wasn’t very happy… I wanted to go back to Colombia.

But, after I started taking classes at Pittsfield High School, I realized that I had come to this country to succeed, not to fail!  So I NEVER gave up!  I did my best in my classes. Also, while I took ESL classes, I met wonderful people from different cultures. I learned many things from them, and I am sure they learned from me, too!  After 10 months, I switched to Lee High School, where I did things beyond my plans… I joined the school Soccer team, I became a member of the National Honor Society, I was invited to attend meetings held by the Principal and the school committee (one of them had to do with picking the new Vice-Principal), and so on. But, perhaps, the thing I enjoyed the most was… singing in Spanish at the Talent Show and at the PROM!  I received a lot of support from my Latin friends, which gave me enough courage to step up!  Even the Americans liked it!  So, at the end, I was thrilled!!!   My high school experience in the United States was fenomenal!

Then, I joined Berkshire Community College in the fall of 2007. I am currently majoring in Business Software Systems. My goal is to earn the degree by next year, and hopefully transfer to Boston Architectural College to study Architecture. I have always been proud of my achievements, and one thing you have to know about me is that “I will NEVER be afraid to show people WHO I REALLY AM!”

  1. Hi Cristhian,
    I think many of the ESL students have gone through the same ways as you did before and most of them are very proud of themselves. Even I have gone to the same ways as you are too. The only difference is that I am already done with BCC and will be continue studying in Umass Amherst. So I hope we both will have great time together in this program and be able to help all ESL students, who have join this program to be succeed.
