“This summer, I moved to Miami from Colombia. In Colombia, I could rarely go out with my friends or walk on the street because of the dangers of doing such. This fear became normal for us. We didn’t think much of it because for us it was what we expected. This year, my parents wanted a better life and thought we should move to Miami for more opportunities; lucky for me, I already knew English so I started making friends right away. Hillel has really helped me feel comfortable in this new lifestyle, and I’m truly grateful because I know moving isn’t easy. Coming from South America like many Hillel kids, I don’t take the little things like being with friends at night for granted. Although I was scared at first, I now feel comfortable and at home at Hillel and Miami!”
