My Travels and New Experiences

My immediate family in Peru.

 I came to America in April of the year 2021. I've arrived here recently, but I feel like it has been a long time. I liked this country from what I had in my memory, but I never thought about staying here to live. It's not easy to let go of your country and leave your family for new opportunities, but in your thoughts it's just progress to start from scratch. It's hard to get used to new people, a new language, or new jobs because the traditions of our countries are very very different, but everything happens for something, and if we are here it’s for something. I can be grateful because I didn't have to pass through difficult moments like other people who risk their life to come here.I think about the things that I’ll do here, but sometimes there are obstacles. I am a person who overthinks things a lot all the time and I had thoughts that when I arrived, I wondered if I would still have my parents, or things would change here. I hope that this trip would make sense, and that I would meet special people in my life, have experiences, and progress; which is why we are here. Finally, keep looking for what inspires you here, there are many opportunities, never forget to call your relatives, and always thank God for being fine.
