Filled with excitement and nervousness I unplugged my phone from the charger to call my friend on hearing her voice without a second thought I revealed the secret I had kept away from her for more than two years about immigrating to the US The reason I had kept it from her is the fear of leaving behind a world I have grown a custom to my child hood place of birth and friend into the unknown But who am I to refuse an opportunity for a change She paused for a second apparently I could feel that she was hurt not because she wasnt happy for me but that I had waited a long time to share this with her finally she replies saying I cant stop you but say my farewell She encouraged and advised me but I could hear from her voice that she wasnt ready to let go of our friendship Thus looking forward to my new journey in life I never anticipated the challenges of assimilating into a new culture such as learning new communication style food and educational systemsMy new life started when I landed in New York struggling with one of the immigration officers who asked me to provide my passport information and other document that prove me legal in the country unsure about what he said I asked if he could repeat himself which he did but still didnt understood his slang because he was too fast He referred me to another officer because he was getting impatient who literally understood me but was able to attend to me I spend almost two hours but finally got all the process done Now it was time to get in touch with my uncle who lives in New York but I didnt have a phone Wandering around I Sighting two officers discussing I walked toward them on approaching I tried to speak to them but my lips were trembling
