Today, I felt like being thankful for my closest friends at Simmons College.
I left home when I was 17 years old, and it was not easy to adapt to the American culture and environnement because I had no family here.
However, I was blessed to find the right people on my path! When I moved to Boston I was really scared. Fortunately, I met these girls. At first we had those awkward silences in our conversations and those awkward looks when we would see each other in the quad.
Months later I have become comfortable enough to share my life experiences, to laugh without worrying if it was inappropriate, and I was so happy when I would see them. I found people who will deal with my ups and downs and put up with my bad temper. I found amazing girls that I could just call when I had to carry my aunt's boxes (lol). I found girls that I could call at 7 in the morning to tell them about my birthday ideas, and girls that could advise me about my deepest struggles.
Here at Simmons, in a short amount of time, I found FRIENDS I will never want to forget! And I hope all of you guys can find that JOY!!!! :)
