My name is Areej and I was born in Pakistan. I lived in Gujrat, Pakistan. It was a good town. Everyone knew each other very well. When it’s some religion event we decorate the whole town. It looked beautiful. On the event every wear very pretty clothes and greet each other very happily. In my town everyone was friendly and nice. There was a uncle that used to give all the kids candy everyday when we go to school. My school was one block away from my house. We went to school at 7:30 and came back at 1:30. It was easy there because I knew the language and the people there. I speak three languages. I speak Urdu , Punjabi, and English. When I came to us It was a turning point for me. In my country I didn’t speak English i speak my native language but, in america you have to speak English and I didn’t know a lot of English. In America my study were hard because I was learning new language and it’s hard.
In school i like to learn more English. I also like to work very hard to be able to pass all my classes and graduate from high school. I would like to do a lot of activities at school. I would like to watch movie in the auditorium once a week. I never acted before but, I like to try. I want to act in a play because I like acting. I like to painting with my hands it’s so fun. I’m good at learning new things,and listening to teachers. I want to be a good student in school. I follow the rules that my teachers give me.
I enjoy working with others. I like doing projects, and doing group work. It helps me because If I don’t know something I can ask my friend for help and learn. I enjoy eating lunch with my cousin and hang out with them in free time. I am good at making new friends. I am good at helping others and respecting others. I also get along very well with new people.
