What does America mean to you?

By Valeria R.

America means freedom, opportunity and family. Freedom is being able to take a bus to school with my friends, and having playdates with them. It means being able to have more adventures such as taking field trips. America gives me opportunities to go to university and have my dream job of being an astronaut. America gives me more time with my family. In Puerto Rico my dad worked all the time so we didn’t get to see him very often. Our freedom gives us an abundance of opportunities, and time with family.
