 When I came to the U.S, I was 13-year-old, because my father’s sudden decision. My father thought it would be better to live in America than in Korea and the biggest reason is about me and my sister’s studies. When we decided the where we live the first place my family decided to live was New jersey, but my aunt asked my family to live in Georgia with her family, so we move in Georgia. I didn’t have time to study English because my family was busy to preparing for immigration. .I think we don’t have a graduation and just give the high school diploma. When I going to the get my high school diploma I was admired because it’s so different from Korea. In comparison, if the Korean graduation was simple events, the American graduation was like a big festival. The street are beautifully decorated, and there was a car standing like a parade. I was puzzled at first, but soon I was enjoying this parade and having fun. I found one interesting thing when I graduated that is even strangers, they congratulated us on our graduation. I was surprised because in Korea they just said congratulation for know each other. I was surprised because I never get that happen in Korea. I left an unforgettable memory.
