Hi, my name is Luisa and I’m an American just much, as I’m a Peruvian person. I came to this country when I was 13 yrs old, I left everything and everyone I knew behind, to start anew with my family here. I can’t lie, the process of assimilation took some time to get used to, and learning the language wasn’t so easy either. But, everyday, I knew that I had to pushed forward to be better, to learn the language, and to add many positive things to this country that I now call home. So, now that I’m 27, this is still my home and always will be. Please everyone out there, don’t be afraid, keep the dream alive and kicking.
