Life in USA

Hi my name is Merci T. I came in the Spring of 2014 from Congo but Refugee in Uganda. I'm happy I got a chance to come to the United States, the country full of lot of opportunities. I'm happy to have my 2 children(Boy and Girl) born here and by the grace of God I'm praying for them to be able to achieve their goals. When I came to America my first goal was to be able to speak English and now I can teach some basic to others. Once again May God bless America. The only thing I will never forget is 2020 the year of the pandemic which caused me to loose my job But I'm so thankful to be a live. My future goal is to be a Nurse.
