Personal Narrative: I Grew Up In The Middle East

Decent Essays

I grew up in the middle east. In the middle east, the public schools doesn’t allow mixture of the two genders. In other words, there is a school for boys and a school about a mile away for girls. Then all of a sudden I’m here in America. Different culture, school systems and everything. So far I’ve only been here for about 2 months and yesterday, Jan 5th 2016, I received my first kiss.

I met this girl one week after I’ve settled here. We started a conversation during class and I happen to be a very funny person. So she was laughing throughout the whole class period.
