When I decided that I was coming to the US, shamefully I was lectured every day by family and friends to not go out, not make any friends or interact with the public for the fear of being victimized because I'm foreign. But the people, city, my classmates, the public, everything and everybody was as peaceful and friendly as they could ever be!
I have made several meaningful relationships since coming to Spokane. First of all, I have an amazing host family. If it wasn't for them, I would have never accomplished all the things I have. They are always supportive and encourage me to be best of myself. They are my second family.
I lived in Seattle for 2 years, and I decided to move to a smaller city. When I told my friend I'm moving to Spokane, he said "what?! Spokane is in middle of nowhere!" I'm here now and I love it and their people.
