International Youth Day 2017

Today’s International Youth Day, and here’s my personal experience with international culture. When I came to the USA, I went to a Hmong School. There we learned about the Hmong culture, but eventually I was moved to an English speaking school. There I struggle with communication as I didn’t speak English well, nor was I knowledgable with it’s culture. Thus I had to adapted, thankfully I did well and managed to hold my grade up, and didn’t flunk. I learned to speak English more fluently and was able to follow conversation better. It was thank to the situation that I was forced into that allowed to to improve myself. Because I was the only Hmong in my class and the those that surrounded me weren’t Hmong, and because I just transfer, I was force to make friend who are vastly different than me, in culture and in the way we speak.
