Coming to America
By Josh Pucé
My dad's and my interview
Why Thomas Jefferson is my untouchable hero
Just to be clear
Why should we allow illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S.
What I think a hero is
This is supposed to resemble the rich culture of Colombia that greatly effects my family. Especially the great food. This is a common Colombian food called and empanada. It is one of my family's favorites.
This plane resembles my dad leaving his entire life in Colombia to come to america for a better education and new opportunity.
This resembles America and its freedom and opportunity which my dad experienced when he first came to America.
Poem for my father
Dad you’ve always been there for me. Whether i’m confused, I scrape my knee, or get stung by a bee. You’ve taught me to sail in the sea, climb a tree, make a panini, be carefree, successfully ski, to shave if I were to ever grow a goatee. You’re a trainer and I’m your trainee. I think that we will both agree. That even when I’m thirty I will always love thee.
Step one: put 1 1/2 of cornmeal in a large mixing bowl
step two: pour 1 cup of water into the large mixing bowl
step three: add 1tbsp of vegetable oil
Step four: mix thoroughly until thickened
Step five: cook in pan until firm
These textbooks resemble one of the main reasons my dad came to America in the first place, a better education. He came as a foreign exchange student.
