Riding the School Van

Written by Serena Lee

One of the biggest changes of living in Cambodia is that Reina and I have to ride the school van to school. On the first day of school Reina and I were so nervous to ride the van. When the van came to our stop we nervously got on and Reina (she’s a chatterbox at home) was totally silent. The second person we picked up after us was a fourth grader and she came right up to us with no hesitation and sat next to us. She said her name was Soneata and we talked together for the whole ride. I was so surprised that she was so friendly. When we arrived, she said bye to us and went to her own fourth grade friends. I felt good making a new friend. If you want to make a friend, be a friend!!!
