I moved to the United States from Uzbekistan last year with my family. We are a family of six, and I’m the oldest, so it is my responsibility to help my parents and teach my siblings.
I didn’t speak English at all when I moved here, so I never wanted to leave the house. Since no one in my family speaks English, I told myself, ‘You have to study, you have to be brave.’ So, I signed up for English classes at Queens Community House.
The first day, I was so nervous. But on the second day I was very happy. The more confident I became with English, the more I branched out. Now I am taking a training course to become a medical assistant. When I complete my course, I’m going to begin working so I can contribute at home. After that, I will start classes at Queens College. I want to be a doctor and give back to the community I’ve found here.
My family is Muslim, and I am very proud of our religion. Sometimes girls my age feel pressured to get married and start a family, but my parents are very supportive of my career. I'm glad my siblings are growing up here, so they can also have many accomplishments.
QCH is proud to be a sponsor of the #FamiliesBelongTogether Rally and March being held on Saturday at 10 AM at Foley Square. We invite you to march with us as we protest the current administration’s policy of separating children from their families at the U.S border. We will be meeting at the corner of Union Tnpk and Queens Blvd (north side) at 9 AM. Please email email@example.com for more info of if you plan to join our group.
Thanks for another great performance at our Rego Park Senior Center, @danceentropy!
