I Am An Immigrant – Voices

“When coming to America, it was super hard because I was an outcast. They found everything to just not accept me and it all related to not being born in America.”
Harrisburg, PA
I swore only being in the first grade that I hated America. I was born in Canada in 1996 and from what I can remember, life there was pretty friendly. It was very easy to communicate and it was more laid back because everyone helped one another including the government. There was a large population of immigrants in Canada but many of them such as my family had the goal of getting a citizenship so we could go to America. When coming to America, it was super hard because I was an outcast. I couldn’t get into public school right away because my birthday didn’t match the age acceptance for school so my parents turned to private school. When entering for private school, I had to go through several test just to be admitted for first grade! They found everything to just not accept me and it all related to not being born in America. I learned that in America it’s all about individualism, which was the totally opposite of Canada and what I’m used to. Even though, I had some bad experiences in America, America taught me a lot as well. America taught me that the opportunities are yours, just take advantage of them.
