This piece was for a contest for young students living abroad called “Life in a Flying House”. This piece is very special to me; in this piece, I tell my personal experience of my life in America. My experience is simple; all my classmates and friends come from such exotic and different places of the world. Their language, their looks, their culture and their history is always a thousand poles apart; yet, we all come together, in a single unbroken quilt of acceptance and friendship. America is a crossroad, and I am proud to be a part of it, and I hope that all who see this piece see the miracle and greatness that I see everyday.
