Hi, my name is Yao Ming. I am 30 years old. I live in China and have a wife and 3-year-old son.
I need to go to the United States of America for a better life. I also need to go to America so I can support my family back home in China.
The ship isn't comfortable. It is cramped and pretty smelly. It will be worth going to the United States of America.
While sailing the boat rocked a lot so I was on the deck sea sick all the time.
After arriving in San Francisco I was excited for a new fresh beginning.
After arriving I was easy to discriminate because I didn't look, speek, or act the same as everyone else. I worked hard and I had lower paying wages. It was hard to stay safe because working conditions were hazardous.
