I want to write some experience in my life and that somehow can represent my personality. Conrad has said that: “if you are brave, you will have the courage to come; but if you shrink back, they’re gonna be nothing left. ” I have been through several culture shots in my life.
When I was 8 years old, we move to a bigger town to start my elementary school education. that’s the first time I feel I was different than other kids. For close to my father workplace, we move to Nanjing when I was in third grade. The first year I have been laughed at by other kids lots of time cause I am a “stranger” to this city. Your dress is different; your tone is also different than other kids. No matter what, I need to get my life better and I was trying to get into the student union. before that, I faced a big challenge that I need to do a speech in front of all the classmates and teachers in the whole school. luckily, it was going pretty well. Since then, the kids nearby all come and make friend with me
the third culture shot: I came to American to seek my education.

there was a young boy was born in a small village in China back to 1999. his grandparents are both farmers; his parents are both teachers. At that time, between the village or town and city, there is a huge wealth gap. As anyone else in this society, poor people have always been laughed at. when this boy grows up to 8 years old and its time for him to go to elementary school. since there no school in this poor town, all his family move to a bigger town which near the village. that’s the first time this boy felt he is different from any other kids. that boy which is me. for just depend on teacher’s small income. Our life is not that good so that my father quit his job and start his business.
Three years later, it’s time for me to go to third grades. for my better education chance and convenient to my father workplace, our whole family moved to Nanjing. The first year I have been laughed at by other kids lots of time cause I am a “stranger” to this city. Your dress is different; your tone is different; your habit still not belongs to them. That’s pretty bad for such an 11 years old child. that time I didn’t know people will keep away something that you do not familiar with. be brave
third culture shot: come to American
I have the same opinion as YIFU on how racial problems facing the children of immigrants in America. We both think the language which also is communication is very important.
YIFU thinks Knowing our identities and be proud of it is extremely important for us especially when we move to a new place. I agreed with that. Because only if we could understand ourself’s culture, so that we can have a place to support us and give us our logic and ways to observe and study other culture.
Refugees is a group who has left his or her country of origin and is unable or unwilling to return because of war, violence, or persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution because of race, religion, nationality, political opinions, or membership in a particular social group. Most refugees don’t have able to come back to their own country and have no choice to settle down in the U.S. From 1990 to 2007, the amount of the refugee come to the United States is decreasing.
If you are approved as a refugee, you will receive a medical exam, a cultural orientation, help with your travel plans, and a loan for your travel to the United States. After you arrive, you will be eligible for medical and cash assistance.
Sometimes, refugees’ identity wouldn’t be accepted by the country they go to. So, international refugee law allows them to have right not to be returned to a place of persecution and protect their human rights.
