Hi, I am 34 and going to college for the first time. I am a wife and a mother of 3. We moved to the U.S. 5 years ago, so I have never been in school here and english is my 2nd language. Is there anyone in the same situation as me?

Aunty, you have a lot of courage. I don't know how you do it. I'm upset because I'm about to move 5 hours away from all the people I love. I don't know how I'd handle being in a foreign country and still going to school. You sound really brave and I'm sure you'll do well.

Hi, thank you for your reply. I had my 2de week of college now and so far things are going well. I hope your move goes well. It is always scarry to move away from the environment that you are used to. But it can also be very exciting.
