It really said Christopher McCandless, "The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, so every day to have a new and different sun."
When I was a teenager, the West, as always, seemed to be the epicenter of the possibilities and opportunities. In this article I want to share my experiences of young immigrants in the Western world over the past 20 years. I was only fifteen years old when my parents decided to move the base from India to the United States. As a young teenager, like everything else in this age, I was very excited about the idea of immigration and become a US citizen studying that part of the world, of which I have read so many books. On the basis of the armed forces, my life has always been adventurous and fast, being exposed to many states, cities, cultures and wonderful diversity of India. Like all children Favzhy (in the army), as they are called, I lived in an adventurous, but a protective environment, where we somehow corrupted to the core comfort, safety and joy of life. I loved this life.
I finished exams on the board, and we went first to the UK for the holiday, which was beautiful and mesmerizing, and became my first international exposure, and then reached the target destination of the United States. The first few weeks were like a dream where everything was perfect, we had a rest in Washington, Orlando and Seattle. Then we slowly entered into the realities of life and problems of the new immigrants. I went to school, where he felt lonely and strange, because my focus was different than most of the others, and I could not understand the spoken language of many students and vice versa. My way of thinking, as well as the concept of my public school in India was very different, but soon the teachers started to understand what the inherent strength of my educational knowledge base, including grammatical correctness of my written English, which was missing in my classmates. At the same time I joined a summer job at the airport, where we were to provide assistance to passengers with a variety of ways, language, disability, place of management, etc. On the first day I helped a passenger in a certain direction at the airport, she gave a tip of $ 5. I took the money, but as soon as I got home, I cried my father's heart, saying that in India we nahilyaemsya on the poor, and that's my glass. I felt small. My father tried to explain to me what is the culture here, and there is nothing wrong, it's a way to be polite, but I was too upset to understand. This was my first experience of a new culture of the west. My work went on in the summer, and I still remember the end of summer, when I was not imposed, I was upset that I had not made enough pocket money. I met an elderly knight of the colleagues that I have learned that just retired as a senior executive Boeing.
He told me that he did not have to work, he can sit in his big house and just gardening. He went there to have fun. In another case, we found a veteran of the war, the American naval officer who directed the taxi. He said he did it as a pleasure, as in any other profession he meets so many strangers with whom he likes to communicate. There I learned the value of human dignity. No job is small, and no work makes you feel more than the size of your life. Political and business class can learn a lot here. Then I went back to school. I gradually tuned to the new conditions, but missed the end of his life in India. Whenever possible, I would be willing to rush back to India. As I felt a lot of aspects of the new society, some were good and some made me think over the next few years. We often went to Vancouver, Canada, only two hours a nice scenic ride. Another aspect I discovered that living abroad, Indians Indians more closely together than in their homeland, where they remain without a rudder.
My life went on with charm stay in India and America. People in India are jealous of me, where I envied them. Then came a point in my life when I moved forward, finished the specialty and joined Bank of America in the field of investment. I was doing well professionally and still did not have a conflict with a Western life. Usually we went to India once a year, and now I, too, began to feel the positive in my new country rezidentse. I began to see a lot of opportunities. Quality of life, whether you are rich or poor, it is essentially the same as you eat such foods, you get quite easily all the basic amenities of life, have the dignity of work, the dignity of all the work that you do, and most importantly, not corruption at the level of life the average person. It took me many years to understand this, but I now know exactly what I am today, because of the many influences that I have received in my life. I do not say that as an immigrant would not be a problem, of course, would have been because we come from a different culture and education, and go through the suffering of transformation. But all this stage, as the first time a young child will be put to the hostel and crying under the sheet.
Today, my family members & # 39; and is well settled in the United States, the children very well and received the best education and opportunities. I lived in the US for 15 years and had many opportunities to see the world around, the West and the East, and at the same time offering a quality of happiness entrepreneurs lifestyle. I returned to India, is equally convenient and ran his own company "Immigration and visa" after the completion of the master of international business. I myself as an expat, who saw a better life in India, and then the experience of fighting a new immigrant, the stage where people want to go back to your country, now in phase today when I love both worlds equally for what they gave me and my something & # 39; and.
today I Managing director of immigration and related services AKKAM that provides solutions and meets all the requirements relating to immigration, visas to study and related services to various destinations around the world. I feel that all immigration consultants and agents can target customers for authenticity, if they themselves have experienced the realities, challenges and opportunities in the immigration facilities. I would always advise all my clients, friends and family, that life – is a blessing, spread their wings and experience the movement toward the horizon, a lot waiting for you away again, dark clouds and beautiful colors over the horizon.
