Hello. My names is Japhur. I'm an international student. Do you know what that means? That's a student who isn't American. That's me. I'm from a country far away and I'm here to learn English and get my degree from an American university.
I didn't want to come here really. My parents told me I should. I was happy living at home, enjoying my life, playing with my dog and going out with my friends. Then one day my father said to me: "Japhur, you must go to America!" "Why, father?" I replied, "America is far away and it is a strange place. They only eat hamburgers and drink Coca-cola. I do not wish to go there."
