My name is Uwase. I am from Rwanda. My country is special because my family is there. In my country the biggest problem is war. I was feeling problems when l lived there because of fighting.
My family came to Buffalo because America has a way to earn money. I came to Buffalo with my family. I was feeling sad when l came here because my family and friends were left behind.
The hardest part about coming to Buffalo was the language.
The things l like about Buffalo are the people because they are friendly. The thing that l do not like about Buffalo is the weather.
