I would like to introduce myself .
My name is Guzal. I’m upper junior in accounting major at Baruch College. I’m an international student from Uzbekistan.I have been living in New York for a bit more than 2 years. First, I have transfered from my home college to Kingsborough Community College, last year I graduated it and transfered to Baruch College in fall 2011.
English is my second language, I have been learning this language for more than 15 years and I’m still learning.But I hadn’t practiced speaking that much in my homeland, I had to write a lot of essays before I took TOEFL. However I never wrote so many essays as I’m doing it in the USA. Probably for me it’s harder to do blogging since I got used to write formal essays and never experienced in this style of writing. It feels strange and unusual.I’m trying to do my best.
I don’t have a hobby, I just love to spend my spare time with my friends in the city, at the parks. I love kids a lot, I believe child’s love for you is true love in this world.I have more than enough friends here and in my hometown, I like to make new friends.My biggest fear is loneliness, probably that’s why I like to be always surrounded by people.
Why did I choose this topic for my blog?
I was 19 years old,when I left home first time in my life.My family was everything for me and still is. I was not strong enough to make my own decisions,but one day I did it. I was very dependent on my parents in everything and would never imagine myself living alone in other country.I used to live typical life , was planning to graduate my home college ,get married in early twenties. I didn’t have a purpose in my life.But I changed ,became stronger,more independent. Most parents never let their daughters go so far before marriage in my country, the role of women in Uzbekistan is different from western culture. Woman is still inferior and man is a head of household. However, now it’s at the stage of changing and I’m one of examples of this adjustment.Sometimes life makes you change ,because it’s impossible to stay the same when life goes on and everything transforms around.
I think my theme “Transformation in the Role of Women within Time” is related to me as a young lady ,who had to change within time…
