The challenging family situation I would like to share with you is our move from china to the United States In 1999 my life was changed when my family immigrated to a new country hoping for a better future My life in China was hopeless because I was a failing student with not much interest in school The only positive aspect to my life was my private computer lessons Web Design presented me with an opportunity to create my own world One day my parents told me that we were going to move to the United States of America and I developed a strong feeling that my life soon would change forever Our family moved a totally different environment This I knew would be my toughest challenge to date As a ninth grader attending a new high school in a new country I felt left out because of my inability to communicate I was in the ESOL class Some guys assumed that I did not understand them at all so they made rude remarks about me I understood them maybe not completely but I knew the intent of their messages I wanted to go back to china and talk freely with my friends and play games with them My parents often told me that they decided to move here because of the educational opportunities yet I continued to rebel and refused to listen to what they said Over time my English improved I moved on to regular English classes some of which were challenging I always enjoyed class trips to the computer lab where I would start programming on the computer Before long I made more friends and found that I was enjoying school Thoughts of going back to china faded and my grades going well When my friends came over to my house I became the translator between my parents and my friends Since then I often translate for my parents in any occasion
