Storyboard Text

  • I was eager to tell all my friends in my first grade class the big news... My family was moving to England because of my dad's job! 
  • I'm going to an all-girls school in a city called Bristol!
  • I was 7 years old at that time
  • My sister was probably as excited as me. We wanted summer to be over, so that we could go to school and meet new friends.
  • I've already thought of a handshake that my new best friend and I can do together!
  • Show me!!
  • Stevenie was 5 years old at that time
  •  I was so nervous to go to school the night before, and I couldn't sleep. I busied myself by planning the perfect outfit for the next day.
  • The teacher asked me to stand up in front of the class and say where I was from. 
  • I am from America, but I am so excited to be in Bristol now!!
  • Welcome to class: Virginia N.
  • Unlike I had expected, nobody wanted to do my special handshake with me... The only thing they wanted to talk about was how different America was from England.
  • So does everybody in America have that funny accent?
  • Welcome to class: Virginia N.
  • Are Americans aliens? You have a big head, that's why I ask...
  • They didn't know that what they said had hurt me. After all, we were only 7 years old. I felt excluded from these people who I had hoped would welcome me as a best friend. In this moment, I realized that differences set people apart. I would learn more about how it affects the whole world later in my life, but this small moment in my life let me grow a little bit to understand why people want to excluded people. Even kids can see differences in people, and they like to stay with people they know and are comfortable with.
  • Welcome to class: Virginia N.
  • Maybe I am an alien; I don't belong here.
