My name is Elmer Alexander Guillén, and I am from El Salvador. For me, it is important to be happy and be with my family and friends. One important moment in my life was when I met my parents earlier this year. I had lived in El Salvador now whole life, but now I live with my parents in Red Hook, Brooklyn..

I like my school a lot because there, I practice soccer and also learn english. I know I'm not good at the language yet, but I will try to improve. When I am out my school, I really like skateboarding. I am particularly good at drawing.

My life changed significantly when I decided to immigrate from El Salvador. This changed everything about my way of life. But I am happy because now I have my family and my friends.
