My family immigrated to the United States when I was ten years old because
my parents wanted a better life for their family. I am the oldest of four boys in my
family. When we arrived here, everything in my life changed. Suddenly, I had a
new school, a new language, and new friends. English was my favorite class in
school, and I got good grades. My father got a job working in a factory at night,
and he learned a lot of English at work.
It was different for my mother. She stayed home to take care of me and my
three brothers, so she spoke only Arabic, and she never had time to study
English. Consequently, life was really difficult for her. She wanted us all to
succeed in our education, but she couldn’t help us. When she went shopping, I
was expected to go along with her and communicate with people in the stores.
When my youngest brother started kindergarten, it created a bigger barrier
to communication. Yusuf learned English very quickly, and he didn’t want to
speak Arabic anymore with my parents. My father laughed and called Yusuf the
“little American,” but my mother was very upset. Then one day, my father got
information about evening English programs at my high school. My mother was
really interested, but she was worried because my father worked at night. So I
promised her I would take care of my brothers, and she enrolled in the program.
That was two years ago. My mother is taking an advanced class now, and we’re
all very proud of her.
