Don't worry, we will visit Bangladesh from time to time.
Yes dad... I will take my education seriously.
This will be your new school. Remember we came to the U.S. for your future. So take your education seriously.
Wow, the streets of New York City are much cleaner than that of Bangladesh.
My family came from a country called Bangladesh. In fact I came to the U.S. with my family. I was born in Bangladesh and we came to the U.S. in April of 2010. Bangladesh is a nice and wonderful country, but my family made the deision to come to America.
Sounds exciting! Let's go!
Hey your cousins wants to take us to Manhattan to see the Empire State Building.
My family came to the U.S. so me and my sister could have a better future. Education in the U.S. was the main reason why my family came to America. Another reason we came to the U.S. because there were occasional violence in Bangladesh. My dad sacrificed being a firefighter in Bangladesh so me and my sister could have a better future than my parents.
Yea, we could see our cousins easily without travelling too much.
My family expected to find that the environment of the U.S. to be much cleaner than that of Bangladesh. Also, my family expected that living in the U.S. would be difficult for the first few months without having a job. My parents expected that the education system in the U.S. would be more favorable and better for me and my sister.
When we arrived at the U.S. after getting settled, we went to explore New York City. Many of my cousins already lived in the U.S. so they took us to various sightseeing places. For example, we went to Manhattan to see the Empire State Building. It was my first time seeing such a huge building and that was a wonderful experience to share with my family.
My family settled in New York City because most of our cousins were living in New York City. As a result we could see our cousins and go to their houses without travelling too much. Another reason we settled in NYC because there were a lot of people with the same ethnicity as ours so there isn't much of a cultural difference.
Settling in New York City was the right decision.
I consider myself as an American because me and my family have been living in America for 8 years so far. I identify more with being American than my country of origin's nationality because most of my memory are from America. When my family arrived at the U.S. I was at a young age so my memory from living at Bangladesh is vague.
