Life is characterized by ups and downs and how well you handle them determines how happy and fulfilled your life is.I have not lived many years to boast of seeing it all, hearing it all nor knowing it all but the few years I have spent on the surface of the earth have not been without lessons; a couple of situations that needed careful decision making to get through them safely.Outwardly, most of the citizen in the country lives to achieve the American Dream where it is expected to have patriotic people who have equal opportunities for success.
While staying in the United States I have learnt that the country has all favorable aspects that can help an individual in pursuit for a better life especially when a person would like to build a good character.
Apparently, the country’s economic, social and political status gives a favorable condition for personal empowerment and consequently creating a better future for everyone.
The involvement and the maintenance of the historic tittles inspire me on the importance of creating a strong foundation by finding some of the past events that I can use for self-development.
Coming to America has also enlightened me on the need to have a dream and the necessary steps to achieve the goal.
I found my classmates picking on my favorite girl as a way to get to me.
I had a soft spot for this girl in question and anyone who knew me well would tell you I thought the sun rose and set in her eyes.Of all the things that I can remember from my childhood, three things that have made me whom I am and I believe they will have continued effects in my future as well.They include the reading habit that my mother inculcated from my childhood, frequent change in schools, and competitive urge that runs in our extended family.However, the problem was my fellow students; they were quick to translate this kindness to weakness.I became that student everyone would pick on and being the kind-hearted person I was, I would let it pass. Although I could take the bullying, I felt this was too much.If there is a virtue my mother had taken her sweet time to instill in me, then that would definitely be kindness.For this reason, this made me likable to parents, teachers and generally everyone I came across.From the first day I stepped in the country, I quickly noted that most of Americans live in a true spirit where every citizen focuses on acquiring and utilizing all the opportunities in life for the upgrading of their living standards, the future generation and above all making America great.Seemingly, the American people are brought together by love and thus making the country the most friendly place for residence.Just like the American Dream has been achieved my dreams also have the potential of becoming real.Above all, coming to America has taught me on the need to embrace original culture and lifestyle. S for its hyphenation where all cultures are welcomed and a person does not have to give up their identity to become American.
