A note to Ahmed, from Hawa

29 Mar

Hi Ahmed!

My name is Hawa, and America is beautiful at night. I take Social Studies, Math, Reading, and Science. Some of the classrooms are big, but not all of them.

The city that I live in is Pittsburgh. I’m 13 years old. I would like to be a lawyer, because I am really good at writing and good at sharing ideas with people. Yes, I do get high-school advice and I won a scholarship for college!

I’m a Muslim that loves education and, by the way, aslam malako. I really enjoy Pittsburgh – it is fun, but I want to come back to my homeland in Africa, which is Kenya.
