First Experience in U.S.A.

Hi everyone,

I just realize, next Fall 2013, I will graduate from Mira Costa College with a degree in Computer Programming. I am planning to attend university when I finish with my associated degree.

My first experience in the U.S. was scary. When I come to the United Stated, I did not speak any English and I had to walk for miles in unfamiliar streets to take a bus and a train. I was surrounded by strangers from different races I had never seen before, who spoke a language that I did not understand. Even though I graduated university in Thailand, I started college from the beginning in the United States. First, I wanted to pursue a career in nursing. However, when I realize my strength in calculus and trigonometry, I changed my major to computer programming.




Mira Costa College resources such as counselor and scholarship supported my education and helped me with my classes. I will graduate in two semesters and will be the first in my family to graduate from a college in a foreign country. I am proud of my ability to learn and adapt and my courage to make decisions.

P.S. There are so many choices for you to choose. Do not hesitate to use our resources. When I first came to the United State, I have no idea what I want to do or study. Making new friend and getting involved in college will help you see more opportunities and help you find yourself.
