The Turning Point
A long time ago, there was a mother that made a decision that would affect her child’s life. When I was young, our family was so poor that we had to buy the cheapest foods to eat. In other words, in my homeland China it was difficult for my mother to get a decent job because of the huge population in the country. In addition, there is a big competition for the students to go to college because the university seats are limited. For this reason, my mother decides to move away to the United states in order to give me a better future and a better life.
When I was in elementary school I was a very bad student. I used to hang out with the craziest guys in the class. I learned all kinds of bad things from another bad student. We did crazy things like making smoke bombs and putted it under the cars to prank people. Therefore, I was a disappointment in my mother’s eyes. However, as I grew up, my mother decided to move to the United States to let me have a better learning environment. With this intention, my mother kept me away from those bad kids that were a bad influence on me. If I didn’t come to the United States I might become a useless person like them. However, in the United States everything is new to me.
When I was a child, I have always wanted to learn a second language, and I told my mother about it when I was growing up. At the same time, I never had a chance to learn the most primitive English in my own country. However, now I have the chance to learn the best English from the United States because my mother made the decision to move to the United States. Therefore, if my mother didn’t decide to come to the United States, I won’t be able to learn all these new stuffs I learned in this country.
There are huge populations and competitions in the country of China. In fact, China has the biggest population in the world, and it is so hard for the people in the country to get a decent job. In order to get a satisfied job, people have to study very hard to get higher education. Important to realize that the seats in the universities are very limited, and not all the students can get in. Surprisingly, I’m very lucky that I don’t have to be one of those people in China. I am very glad that my mother brought me to the United States to avoid those huge competitions among the people.
Moving from China to the United States is the most important turning point in my life. Therefore, if I didn’t come to the United States, I might still hang around with the uneducated people on the streets. Additionally, I am living a better life in the United States, and my family don’t have to buy the dead fishes to eat again. Furthermore, I can go to college without a huge competition between the other students. I’m so thankful that my mother gives me this new life.
