I Am An Immigrant – Voices



“Being an immigrant can be difficult and frustrating, especially adapting to a diverse culture and when trying to make friends.”
Being an immigrant can be very lonely and depressing. Especially when you’re in an area where you’re the only one of your ethnicity. It is frustrating when you are from a country that people think is a state or don’t know it even exists. It is also difficult adapting to a diverse culture and trying to make friends. It means leaving family behind and having no idea when you’ll see them again. Being an immigrant also means a lot of paperwork and aggravation navigating the system. It’s not as easy as people think. My family is from Georgia and they have lived there for centuries. I really appreciate the American Dream. The fact that pretty much anyone can get a job, even if it is at Wendy’s. I have to work to provide for my family but for many Americans, it is a privilege. Most people live paycheck to paycheck, just scraping by. I hope to own my own business one day and make a lot of money to the point where I am the boss and I can delegate work to others.
