The object that I choose it’s a picture that was toke the last day I was in colombia before I immigrate to the U.S. I was at the airport with my friends and my family, this day was really sad, all my family and friends were crying because I was leaving but they were also proud of me because I was going to reach my goals. When I sat in the plane I couldn’t stop crying. When I got to New York it was really cold and different, the diversity of people, the houses it was really different than Colombia. Every time I’m getting ready I think about them but I also think that this change was worth it even though I miss my family, friends, food and culture.
