Hey, my name is Aimee Grace Embaba. I am an African girl who lived in Africa for 13 years until she got the chance to join her father, mom and sibling. In Africa I used to be the main attraction or the popular one. I thought coming to the USA was going to be a easy thing adapting but it actually was not. When i got here i was a nobody and it brought things in me i thought i never had in me like how shy i am now around people and can't really share my opinion loudly. i wondered around and was scared of any chances to take. I found myself in the world i never wanted to be This occurred over the last 2 years but i am kind of handling it now. African people actually thinks that America is an easy life that you can fit in easily and become a millionaire in one morning because of how people turn out to be when they go back visiting. They found America the richest country that will ameliorates their life sooner than ever.
Now I lived in the east side of the Bronx at 149 street. I live with my father, mom,my two sisters,a brother,and my cousin. We are actually really close. We like to do things together but we actually don't have too much time to spend together. I am a student at Kingsbrigde international high school. I am in 11 grade. I can actually say that school is the best place that you can wish to go. It may not have all the education needed but it is like mixing fun and education and it gives you spaz and the teachers actually care enough for you. You will want to come to school every day because you know every effort you do is rewarded. They takes us to trip to help us understand their values and much more. They do anything to push us to do the best. I remember this one time when they told us they will give a computer to the one who will pass their regents and each person did their best and it was so successful that almost the whole school got what they were promised.
Enough about my school, now about me. Well in my country I spoke two languages but when I came here I was put in a school where they made a mistake and put me in a Spanish class and there was nothing they could do to change it. So I got to stay there for a whole year and I got to learn how to understand and when I got home I was able to study speaking Spanish, now I speak Spanish and English along with French and Linguala, all together that is 4 languages. Something I find that makes me interesting is.I don't really do much but when it comes to saving the environment count me in. I may not be in big groups or be noticed but I recycle,I use everything the way it suppose to be in order to make a difference. I may be one person but one little thing changes the world because I am part of this world. My neighbors and I really don't collide that much but we have our time when we see each other we say hi talk a little and move on. If I must say they are really nice in different ways. When it comes to describing me I don't even know where to start, I am very complicated. I can't even know the exact adjectives to say about me. All I know is I am easily shy and confident at the same time it actually depends on what kind of morning I wake up on. When I am in dispute i can't stand when someone blames me of something or try to start problems with me I tell the person once they don't understand. I walk away but sometimes I freak out screaming to them but that only happens rarely. Sometimes I think that is me being impatient.I love falling in love without looking at the precaution or letting anything stand in my way. I am smart. People I know who know me like relying on me but I found that too much to carry around and I hate pressure. I like doing things my way. Last time we had to take exams every teacher and even students who knew me were like hey she is going to pass we are counting on you and others were like you are going to help me because you are smart, and because of that I could not stand the position I was in. I had to study hard so I wouldn't fail on them so they wouldn't change their opinion on me and it was tough because while studying the only thing I was thinking was I can't disappoint them. I did not even care about me.
The events that actually changed my life was when i came here i may was afraid but it showed what i never knew or would learn in my country,it gave me opportunities that my country does not have,i call myself a lucky girl because their is a lot of people who can't have what i have now and i should enjoy it until the end of it.My dad actually thought it was best to brings here because our future was guarantee to be a success then my country it did not had any to offer us.I overcome war in 1996 when my country fought for independence we moved to an country next to us but there we got sick close to death but i survive but my 2 twin brothers did not and a lot of other kids who were there.it is the worst thing that i had to see but i overcome it,it was hard enough just to see what were happening there,the soldiers who suppose to protect abused of each people men or women or kids,but i am glad that is over.my favorite color is blue,i am 5''5 my favorite food is shrimps i will love to be a doctor but i think in the future i am going to change my mind i think i am still young enough to make mistake,it is part of life every one goes through it.may this little document of me tells you more about me and i hope i did not bored you.
