“Immigrants have to work twice as hard to make it in America because you have so many competitions and people judging you.”
I was born in St Lucia and even though I can’t remember much, I remember life being simple and small. Anybody could’ve had walk around the whole entire island within 2 hours. I came to America when I was 2 and honestly, I couldn’t picture my life anywhere else but here. I remember my dad telling me immigrants have to work twice as hard to make it in America because you have so many competitions and people judging you. I believe if you get the chance to leave your home country and come to America that you have to work your hardest. Being an immigrant in America is extremely difficult because it takes years for someone to even become a citizen. Besides all of that, America doesn’t make it easy for immigrants. For me, America is better than home because of the enormous opportunities they have. Anybody can become a somebody here if you work real hard and that’s the aim for a lot of people including myself.
