Almost every student goes through some form of hardship and difficulties throughout their school life. But as an immigrant hardship and challenges can be a lot more different than those, who are native or been living here for a very long amount of time. The most difficult time of my school life was middle school. When I was in middle school thats when I first came to this country. Everything around me was new to me. I didn’t know how to speak english properly maybe I knew one or two things but wasn’t enough to get through school life. I can still remember the first day of school when I walked into the classroom everyone was looking at me, maybe they made one or two comments but at that time I didn’t understand. I couldn’t express my feelings to anyone neither I had the courage to talk to anyone. Later on the day a student noticed I was new and he approached me saying “hey whats up, what’s your name” I replied my name is Rashed . And then we started talking and became friends the first day. The next day when I was in my english class a teacher came and took me to another class, when I went there I met couple of other people who was in the same page as I was. That gave me a little sigh of relief, and the friend that I met the first day of school he was also there. In my “education narrative” I want to share my education experiences and the challenges that I have faced and how I overcame my obstacles. If anyone has any recommendation please feel free to share in that way it will be a lot more easier for me to write the “education narrative”.
