Lynn English students ‘living in two worlds’
Lynn English student Tonmoy Singh, a native of Bangladesh, displays some of his family photos during the Living in Two Worlds night at the schoolJeremias Menendez from Guatemala, Adnan Adnan from Iraq, Grace Ng’ang’a from Kenya, and Tonmoy Singh of Bangladesh told their stories at the April 15 event. Menendez described his journey to the United States, which came about after it was decided he should come to the United States to find work, and help his family back in Guatemala. He recalled being crowded for 14 hours on a small boat, in the pouring rain, with no food. Menendez, like many other students who are a part of the program, had never shared his story before. But after joining the program, he said he felt more comfortable talking to the other students and eventually sharing it with a room full of people at the event. “As time passed, I started talking to other students,” he said. “I never shared my problems with anyone before. The program gave me the opportunity to share my problems.” Adnan had a similar issue with discussing things with fellow classmates. By the age of 14, he had already lost three friends. And after fleeing to Jordan, where his father sought refuge, he and his family came to the United States. “I love the program because when I came to school people tried to ask me about my story but I was uncomfortable,” he said. “But after joining Living in Two Worlds, I was comfortable sharing my story.” Ng’ang’a, a 17-year-old 11th-grader from Kenya, misses her mother, who is back home. Despite talking to her every day she says it does not fill the void of not having her around. She enjoyed Living in Two Worlds because it gave her an opportunity to make friends, which, in turn, made her more comfortable living in a new country and adjusting to a new culture. The thing that most inspires Ng’ang’a is seeing the country “that used to own black people have a black president. “Having a black president shows that you can do anything,” she said. “Here you have people who encourage you, a lot of resources from people to help you get to your goals.” Ng’ang’a has goals of her own: to see her mother again and to attend college. She is not sure what she wants to study but has an interest in engineering and pharmacy.
Singh says his parents demonstrated hard work since they were in Bangladesh, and that they brought him up knowing that hard work and determination will bring success. His father came to America to begin working on a better life for his family to join him in. Singh remembers how cold it was when he first arrived but says he was grateful that his uncle bought him a hot chocolate and gave him his coat. His favorite part and most useful part of the program are the connections he has made. “What I like most is I met some people from different countries and learned how they manage two different countries, how they survive here is the most important thing to me,” Singh said.
