about my own life

about my own life

Everybody’s life has many changes. I am a seventeen-year-old Vietnamese girl. At this moment, I’m thinking about the past and draw a new resolution for my future. The time that I lived in my country, and the short time I have lived here in the United States of America, have shaped me into an useful person in this life. In my past, I have ever overcome many difficulties. Those things made me have a lot of changes and made my life to be better. It is a meaningful past in my memory.

I grew up in the countryside and had fun there. In my family, there were twelve members that consisted of my grandparents, my mother, my uncle, my five aunts, my two older brothers and me. My family was very happy to live there. When we had free time, we often went camping some places. I had a few friends, and we always played together everyday. My friends and I would help each other on playing many new things. We would visit each other's homes to chat together instead of staying home lonely. We were known as the smart kids in this place. That life there, for me, was very happy. And changes also started since this time.

When I was five, I started my elementary school in Hochiminh city, the biggest city in Vietnam, and confronted discrimination. I tried to learn to be familiar with new environment, but I couldn’t. It is a fact that once in all my life have I gone to school. I had no friends. In this school, I felt isolated to talk to any students. They were discriminatory. The reason was “I didn’t have father”, he left me as soon as I was born. They teased me as if I was an orphan, but actually, I was not. I still had my mom, and she loved me so much. I was often lonely, but I had accepted loneliness as a condition of my studying. Sometimes, I couldn’t stand their teasing, but I had to…I had to force myself to ignore them. At that time, I missed my friends in the small town, and I cried, I felt something break. It was my soul that hurt. It hurt inside of me, a crushing pain. I wondered why my old friends lived so far away from me. I thought if they were there, they would protect me. Then I seemingly got familiar with the new surroundings, it was living hell. My role in relationship was suddenly reserved. I saw my fear which was to be secluded forever, and it entered my life. For five years I had to face my problem, I learned how to stand on my own feet, as everything with me didn’t happen fluently. And what they did, gave me courage to accept the fact. But it was not the only problem that I had to face.

By the summer of my middle-school years, I had rearranged the structure of my life. I got accustomed to many new friends. Unbelievable, they treated me as friendly and helpful as my old friends did. They were so kind. One time, my family had many difficulties about finance; they didn’t have ability to pay for my tuition. So I might stay at home for a half year without school. Then my new friends encouraged everybody in my school to help me paying for it. After that, I came back to school and continued my studying. That was very lucky for me to have them, my new friends. When I had problems, they always were there for me. I tried to study hard because I wanted to thank for all that my friend have done for me. Every problem didn’t stop here.

As time passed, things got changed again. The year I turned fifteen, I graduated ninth grade and entered high school. Even though I have ever had good friends in intermediate school but the teachers haven’t been friendly. They were always strict. But in my high school, I seemingly satisfied all my new teachers and also my new friends. I had a perfect life in that school. I met a good teacher whose name was Ms. Diep. She was the first teacher that I admired a lot. Besides helping me to improve more about mathematic, she gave me confidence to carry out what I wanted to do. She has told me, "You can be whatever you want to be, whenever you are ready to be it." That was really the great sentence that I had ever heard. So I could make sure about myself, about the ability to succeed in my life. Moreover, my friends in high school loved me as much as I loved them. All my teachers also loved us because we were diligent students. I really pleased with my life at that time. It took me almost two years to study in high school in Vietnam. Then my mom, my two brothers, and I moved to the United States of America. For the first time, I learned to be comfortable with English, new society, and new custom. Besides, I also learned to eat new foods, heard new music, and got familiar with new school. In the first school in America, it was really too hard for me to understand what the teacher said, but I would have to try my best to do everything well. This second world, the United States of America, was too strange for all the newcomers who liked me. However, I trusted with my effort and hopefulness, I would have a brilliant future. Though everything was different, I still remember my past which was very meaningful.

Things keep going on, and I am still myself. The only thing that I will change is to become more mature. My meaningful memory helps me to grow up understanding the significance of my life’s elements. I met many difficulties before, and now I know that I’m strong. I believe in “No pain, no gain”. Dreaming about my ambition is a thing that I’m currently doing. If I can carry out my ambition well, to be a pharmacist, that will mean success.
