    Six years ago, my mom and I came to the United States. It was a new world to explore and a new opportunity. Knowing that I was in the country where I could make all my dreams come true gave me excitement and hope. However, there was something stopping me from being the best I could be: speaking English. The language barrier made it difficult to understand and communicate with others.

    When I lived in Colombia, I wasn’t interested in English. No matter how hard my dad and mom tried, I couldn’t see the importance of it. English as a second language was a difficult class because I was not passionate for it. Arriving here made me realize that beginning life could have been much easier if I had known how to speak English. I felt discouraged, but my teachers and mentors were perseverant and encouraged me to read. I began by reading picture books that gradually became more difficult and helped me to learn English. Throughout this journey, the advice of my teachers and mentors led me to discover that reading had ignited a passion for learning a second language. The opportunities and the roads that have opened up due to knowing a second language are guiding me to an amazing future. I want to help open roads for other children. Books were the tool that helped me learn English, and providing them to children who don’t have the resources to obtain them can make a difference in their lives.
