Hello class. My name is Basmah and I’m from Saudi Arabia. I came to the United State in 2016. I have been living here now for year and half. I am a mother of 3 children. I live here with my family. I decided to start studying English and I have been studying for almost 8 months . I love English and I love to know about other cultures. I am interested in writing in Arabic. It’s my passion and I hope one day I will write my own book. I lived in Texas San Antonio in 2012 for 2 years and I discovered the culture there is very different from here in Virginia. The weather here colder than there. I have many goals in my life and I hope someday I will reach my goals. One of them is finishing my studies and be ready to study my master. I have goals to my kids too I want them to be successful in life and have a good education I want them to be responsible for themselves I know some day I will celebrate when finish my studies and I will be happy then it is time for other goals.


I have been to many places in the world, but my favorite place is where my family lives no matter where. To have a home full of loving people, and that is a blessing. To have people who support you when you are devastated is incredible. My family always supports me, they give me hope and they encourage me all the time. I am thankful for all the technological innovations now because I can call and see my family anytime anywhere.  It is amazing how these innovations make our lifestyle easy. With one touch I can reach them and be able to communicate with them. I miss my favorite place. I spurn the idea of living very far from them, even though I have fun here and I am happy. But the idea of being far away from my parents and my siblings is devastating. I made a vow that I will make my family proud of me. My intuition is I will try to visit them in Summer, I hope I can do it.
