When I first arrived, I was kinda shy about making friends. And I couldn’t bring myself to talk to strangers.
They just think, “Oh, you guys already have your own group. We don’t need to include you.”
I think that, to Americans, you’re still kind of…you feel like a foreigner. They’re like, “You’re not American. You’re from somewhere else.”
When I’m back home, there’s always someone I can talk to. Now I’m alone. So I used to get really homesick.
Local people, most of them are very…easy going. They’re really easy to make friends with.
They’re like older siblings. They look after you. I’ve made so many friends in America.
