After I move to live in America 9 months, My life is changing alot from house wife turn to be CNA study with Our lady of the lake, I was lucky than other american people. I got scholarship from Nursing school as CNA stipend program the scholarship given only 5 person in the only. There were 17 applicant whom applied for the scholarship and they are all American they speak english but me I don't speak english as mother language, But I beaten other american and got the scholarship, i so proud of myself than I can do it, I am on the CNA class for 3 weeks now and the 1st test I got B+, and 2nd test I got C+, It shows to everyone that I am not stupid and I am working hard enough to get the good grad... Even I can't reach to 'A' ( I should say what are you expect to much to reach to A I just live here only 9 months I don't go to ESL class also ) Everyday I spent time on my text books more than 6 hours and you know I didn't read to many page, the each page I always wrote thai meaning which vocab I don't understand, but I try my best to have better life and help my husband earn the reward, My teacher told me privately that Waxxx You have talent on nuring degree but you have to improve your english if you want to contiouns to LPN, I do agree with her and i will study on ESL class after I finished the vacational degree

I hope ya all have good stories to share

Have a great days,

Congrats! You are one of the few fortunate ones. Been here for 17 months now. Used to be in Las Vegas and got a job after 2 months of my entry. We moved to Maryland in January for my husband's job promotion. We have a baby boy who's now 8 months old. I started my Marketing degree online this summer and I must say learning/studying here is very different from Manila. I am enjoying though. After 11 years, I am back to school for my 2nd degree(1st was HRM.
