This was a very interesting reading! It opened my eyes to the struggles many people have of living in America and trying to fit in by becoming Americanized but ALSO keeping their own values, beliefs and customs from their home country. It must be a huge struggle. It sounds like it makes it hard to fit in at school. I never thought of all of those different issues! Immigrants are constantly being pushed back and forth..act American..but keep your heritage. You move to America for freedom and opportunity yet you aren’t completely free because you are constantly in a push pull of how to act, feel and what to be.
