What does America mean to you?

By Braydelii H.
Metairie, Louisiana

America means freedom to me, people have freedom and a second chance to change their lives. I came here for a better life. In my home country, I used to play in the streets without shoes. Now that I am in America I have a home, my family and plenty of shoes. America can give anyone a second opportunity. Unfortunately, some people still judge others because of their cultures or their skin tone. In the beginning moving was hard but when I got adapted to America some people were friendly. America means a chance for a better life.
