I was born in Laos and arrived in Seattle, Washington at the age of seven. As far as I can remember, my first day of school was full of awe and wonder. I had no idea what I was doing or what anyone was saying because I’ve never been schooled nor did I speak any English. A week later, I learned that neither my classmates nor teacher knew what to say to me. My teacher or the school administrators didn’t know how to teach me and my older sister because we made up two of the three Lao students at the school.
