ESL FOR FAMILIES This Is My Story Let me introduce myself. I am from Venezuela. I am 31 years old, and I have one sister and one brother. I have a daughter who is four years old in this country. My job is babysitting and housekeeping. I like to read but I don’t like to cook. I am an immigrant and this is my sto- ry. I came to the US six months ago. I come for a better life. The food short- ages and medical basics are hard to find in Venezuela. My daughter did not have the proper immunization for her age. Now, I am in the United States, I have many goals and dreams. The job I want is preschool teacher. In 5 years, I want my own business. In 10 years, my hope is to be stable in a country and for my daughter to be in high school. This is my story. This is who I am. Anonymous 8
