Below is what i have stated writing:
I learned the real challenges immigrants experience in the United States. They experience lifestyle adjustment, culture. differences, and a whole different level of acceptance. They are not just learning and adjusting to one culture, but to hundreds of cultures to become a real global citizen. They are fighting external stereotypes about themselves and internal ones that are already embedded in their mind about America and the American people. Yet, throughout this course the Individual I read about had a different experience of living in the States. Some had positive and others had negative. The most important thing that strikes me is learning how they needed to have balance in order to embed themselves in the society and to be a productive citizen without losing their identity and values. Of course, everyone’s experience is different and unique, but I will explain what I have learned and the major things immigrant struggled with.
