My name is Jennyfer Chacon. I am from Bogota, Colombia. I moved to the United States when I was fourteen years old. It was really hard for me to move. I had a lot of friends, all my family was there and I lived a normal life. I miss a lot of things from my country. My family is the one that i miss more. It is hard when someone you love is sick and you cannot go there to help them. It is harder if they die.
I know that my parents made this decision for my own good. Here I’m going to have a better future with a better education. Being in a new country brings bad and good things. One of the good things is that i get to share more time with my family. Back in Colombia I didn’t see my father at all. Here I got to know him better and share new things with him. Now he takes me where ever I want to go and we have a lot of fun together. My family is really important to me because they demonstrate how much they love me. One of the bad things is that I have to get used to this life. New friends, different languages, and some times there is a lot of discrimination. For me is really hard to adapt to a new environment. I am trying my best because I want to succeed and be important when I grow up.
In my future I would like to be an architect. First I want to study two years of interior design and then take a career of architecture. I want to help my parents. I don’t want them to work more because they have suffer a lot for me. I want to give them back all what they gave me.
