Inspired by Anna Karina and I didn’t even know it.
I’m an immigrant in the United States. I may have came “earlier” but I’m also an immigrant through and through. My husband lived in the States 20 years before he met me. He has learned English, graduate from college and found his first job in New York City. In more ways than one, he is more American than I ever will be. I’m truly proud of him – he makes my entire world smile.
I was in a room filled with other amazing immigrants (just like me, except they are way more amazing than I ever will be) and I got to witness them officially become American citizens. I really do hope they have a better life here in the States. Honestly, they inspired me to find my own mark in the world. Wherever it may be.
It’s okay to find a home that is not in your birth country. Sometimes your birthplace is merely a starting point.
在美國，我也是個移民，即使我祖先是比較早到那一批。我先生在遇到我之前，已在美國住了二十年。他在美國學習英語，讀大學，並在紐約找到了第一份工作。在許多方面，他比我更像美國人，我很以他為榮，他讓我的世界充滿微笑。 我曾在一個充滿移民的大堂裡見證了他們正式的宣示成為美國公民，我誠心希望他們都能實現他們的美國夢。同時他們也鼓勵我無論在世界哪個角落，都要找到自己的定位。 在一個陌生國度建立自己的家是非常正常的，有時你的出生地僅是代表人生的一個起點而已。
