When Jeanne first arrived at Manzanar, she felt overwhelmed because before, “We were the only Japanese family in the neighborhood.” (7) The family began to grow apart as time passed, so Jeanne began to explore by herself. Once schools started, she began to experiment with many things; however papa didn’t have the same thoughts. Before they began to leave Manzanar, they expected brutal racism because of other stories, but once they arrived in the new place, it wasn’t as bad as they thought. While they were there Jeanne begins to go to Middle school as a 6th grader. While she is there, people are very surprised that she can speak English.
The Pledge of Allegiance has always been a part of my daily routine as a high school student. It’s a requirement that each morning the teachers make us stand up and put our hands over our hearts. Of course, they tell us it’s our choice to say it. But, who is not going to join in when all of their classmates around them are reciting those few lines? It’s just so easy to join in with the crowd than actually stand up for what you think is right.
Toni Hall September 18,2012 Writing Bill Nedrow I had to cope with being the new kid at two different schools. At my first school I didn’t know anyone, the environment was different, and they had us working. At my second school I knew a lot of people, I wasn’t use to the children behavior, and events happened that I never experienced. Switching from school to school is very difficult. The very first high school that I attended was Christ The King which was a catholic school, and because I was the new kid I really didn’t know anyone.
Moreover, I did not say a word to anybody my entire first year. I could not read any of the work giving to me much less understand it. Consequently, I was held back one grade. Times where difficult for me the first few years here in America.This new life I now live in America transformed me completely to a different person. Today, I realize how important and significant that change was.

They become frank, open and direct in dealing with others. In my case, I came to the U.S to reunite with my family last year. The first semester I studied in San Jose City College, I had a lot of difficulties adapting to a new environment of studying. In my country, Vietnamese students are afraid of approaching their teachers about any problems whether their teachers are right or wrong in class. Therefore, I didn’t feel free to ask teachers or discuss things with other people openly in class.
I remember going to kindergarten at Greenville Elementary School. During the school year I wasn’t able to sit still for a long period of time because of my lack of concentration. Unfortunately, by the end of the year I still couldn’t read even though everyone else could, which may have been a direct correlation from spending most of my time on the playground instead of the classroom. So my parents had me retake kindergarten the following year, and luckily my parents enrolled me in a new school once we moved that year to Wilmington, North Carolina. This allowed me to not have to worry about the kids who would have been in first grade the next year.
