For the I-research paper, I want to write something relates to my personal narrative paper. In my personal narrative, I talked about my experience of immigrating from China to America, and how that was a struggle for me. There are thousands of people immigrating into the United State each year, and many of them are children or teenage that will attend school in the US. I want to know if there are differences between coming here at young ages and coming here at high school or even college age. Are most immigrant students struggle like me; if so, how did they overcome? When I first attended school in America, my school provided a program like ESL (English as Second Language) to help people like me, is there any other program that the US education system provide that help them as well.
Before I attended college, there is a time period where I consider going to the army after high school graduate. However, I didn’t have the courage to make that move, because many of my friends and my family firmly believed that attending college is the best for my future. Is this true? Was college necessary? Some people started working right after high school graduate, some people join military after high school and attend college after serving serval years, and some people took a year off to relax and travel then attend college the next year. I want to know how each different option was going to affect one’s life.
This is my first year in college, and I am a bit confused as to what should I do during summer that’s coming up in a few months. There are many options to choose from, such as taking summer college courses, do an internship, working for money, or just take a break and stay home. Each option has its benefit, but which one is the best one? Should a college student do something meaningful during the break? I want to take this chance to figure out what should I be doing this summer.
