Kate’s Story

We lived in Texas before and Utah before that and Belgium before that!! We moved because of my dads job I was 10 when we came and am now eleven but going through all of this was not easy I still struggle to keep friends and understand what they are talking about. Many people made fun of where i came from the worst someone said to me was “ Hey Kate your not letting Mexicans in!!!” That broke my heart I couldn’t believe they thought I wanted to build a wall I am much against trump but sadly lots of people think I was the reason he was elected how crazy is that! So to all immigrants stay strong and remember you bring colour to the world!!!

-Kate, Brancepeth, Durham
