My Name is Diana

June 30, 2017


In 1991, I was born in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.  I have always been fortunate to have a lovely mom and an incredible dad.  I also have lots of really cool aunts, uncles and primos.


San Luis Potosi is a charming colonial city; it is full of baroque art and cobblestone streets. 


Ever since I was young, I started to like everything about my state – also named San Luis Potosi – and my country.  My dad bought me many books about Mexican history.  I still like to read about it and many other subjects.  Reading is one of my hobbies.


When I was nine years old, I had the opportunity to come to the U.S.A.  This has been one of the best experiences of my life.  From the moment I arrived, I saw many new things and have enjoyed learning about a vast array of cultures.  I have definitely fallen in love with the American life style.  One of the first things I noticed was peoples’ styles of clothing.


I didn’t have any English classes until middle school, but it was so basic that I didn’t learn very much, so I started to study on my own with books, listening to music, and watching movies.  Before long, I started to learn.


When I return to San Luis Potosi, I will have a new perspective about life.  I will continue to work hard to improve my English because it will help me in my future.


Lately, I started attending two conversation circles and they are helping me very much.  I am learning new vocabulary and I am starting to have more confidence in my ability to communicate with others. 


When I return home in September, I will receive a degree in engineering.  Then I will be an intern at an automotive company.  Next year, I plan to work for a big company.  While working, I would like to get a doctorate.  The better my English is, the better my chances of getting a really good job.


I love the U.S. and I really appreciate all the opportunities this county provides.  I might move here in the future, but now l long to return to San Luis Potosi!
