Hello everyone. My name is Qipu Li. I am from China and have been in New York for almost two years. I gradually got used to life here. I think New York is different from my city. There is some delicious food, beautiful views and outstanding architecture. My major is psychology, but I don’t think my career will be a psychologist. I like acupuncture and I will learn it. It’s amazing, just use some needles to relieve the patient’s pain. However, the most basic problem is that my English is too bad. I spent a lot of time, but it is still not good. Um, I continue to work hard. I am confident that my English will be best one day.  This is me.

Hello everyone, my name is Estefania Jaquez,

I am from the Dominican Republic. I am 22 years old and I have been living here in America for 5 years. I started college in September 2017 at LaGuardia Community College which means that I have been studying at LaGuardia for 3 years. My major is Psychology and this is my last semester. Now, I am working and studying at the time but my favorite hobby is cooking. I am always watching videos of food and how to cook different things. 

 When I was a child I lived with my grandparents from my mother’s side in a town called Esperanza in the Dominican Republic . Then when I was 15 years old I moved to live with my mother in Santiago (city) because I was about to travel to America and she wanted to spend some time with me before I came here. I lived with her for like one year and a half before I came here. I came  here to the United States when I was 16 years old, almost 17 years old. I went to high school here for 2 years, and then in 2017 I started college.

Right now I am just focusing on my classes and working in a part time job. This is my last semester at LaGuardia Community College and  I am very excited about what I am going to learn this semester in my classes and hoping to do well to get good grades. 

In my future I would like to have my career done with a good job, and a beautiful family,  then get my own house and continue to achieve important goals in my life.

Nice to meet you! My name is Lily, I am currently studying Business Administration at La Guardia. I used to spend most of my time going to concerts, but now I am usually on Spotify looking for new music to listen to. I love R&B, Pop, and Punk, but I’ll give pretty much anything a shot. I was recently laid off due to the pandemic but was fortunate enough to be able to use it as an opportunity to finish my degree. I should be finished by the time it is safe to travel again, and I hope to have enough money saved by then to do some sightseeing before going back to a traditional 9-5 work environment.
