What does America mean to you?

By Alyssa B.
Oreland, Pennsylvania

Freedom, opportunities, experiences and beauty are all words that show what America means to me.

Freedom and opportunities are major privileges of being an American. I am especially grateful for the freedoms to work for pay, go to school and voice my opinion as a female. These are opportunities that not all countries have.

America has a ton of beauty like beaches, national parks and mountains. I love that everyone has access to create memorable experiences in this beautiful country. My most memorable experiences were, with my family traveling to San Diego, the Statue of Liberty and the Smoky Mountains.
