I love my country, Mexico
I was born in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. When I was a child I liked to run and play with my neighbors' kids and I loved to draw. I was good in school.
I came to the United States of America in 1998. We came to this country so that we could have a better life for my children.
I live in Austin, Minnesota. I like my place and my neighbors, because they are nice. Every day I go to school. I love to learn and I believe in education. I learn English because I want to improve my English skills. I have a good job so I can help my family.
My country is beautiful and is a neighbor of the United States. There are too many people. People in my country are friendly and hospitable. The opinion that tourists have of people in Mexico is good. When we have free time we like to know about other countries and having parties is common in my country. The weather in my country depends on the four seasons of the year. The best time to visit my country is summer. It is common for the family to get together. A typical food in my country is tacos. Mexican food is well known all over the world.
In my country it's difficult to find a job; many people in my country are not working. There is a lot of crime and violence. One thing that is better in the United States than in my country is lifestyle. It's possible to find a better job, a house, and a school for children.
What I miss most about my native country is my family; it is very important to me. One interesting thing about my native country is culture. My country has rich history and culture. I love my country.
