At her school that she use to attend she had to wear slippers so that the floors wouldn’t get dirty and at the new school graffiti covered the halls, And was taught to bow their heads to teachers at every moment.

The young girl tried her best to fit in with the rest of the Korean children that she even went home after school to watch the reruns of “Threes Company” in attempt to learn English language. The school divided them within immigrant groups. They were separated into generations, she was put into the E.S.L. Group which was known as the 1.5 generation.

They would celebrate the lunar Korean thanksgiving as well as the American one. The wealthier Korean immigrants children attended private schools, such as she was accustomed to.
