As student any person has the chance to meet different kind of people, different culture, race, beliefs, etc. I’ve met Johanna she was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in 1978 her birthday is April 1, and then she came to U.S. in December 21, 1995. Johanna’s first language is Spanish. She is always thinking in go back to her country again, where her family misses her a lot.
Johanna lives in Brooklyn, NY with her brother, cousin and his wife.
After working as a home health aid she has to take the train to come to school. She used to work as a bank cashier and now she saves money to buy a house in the future. As a hardworking person, the opportunities that this country gives to her are very important.
She thinks of La Guardia as “very good college” where her major is Computer Program, She took ESL97 and ESL98. She’s improving her skills in typing at home, and she’ll buy a new computer next year. In ESL99 her favorite topic is grammar. Sometimes she spends up to three hours doing homework.
Johanna favorite season is summer, she when to swim every weekend last summer, she enjoys volleyball also. Short dresses are her preference.
She is a really good embroider, and home decorator also. But one her wish is to paint something.
Back in her country, her three favorite holidays are: February 27, which is Independence Day, they celebrate a carnival, Christmas and New Year. She has been in Massachusset, Boston, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Her future traveling stops are Las Vegas, Florida and Mexico. Her favorite number is 1 and the treasure is her computer at home. Lately she saw Triple X she liked it.
One of the problems that she’d fight if she were a mayor is the illegal private clinic where abortion is practiced and close all stores that sell cigarettes to young people. About Giuliani: “was a very good mayor and he did his job well.” She said.
One of the things that I like of Johanna is that she is an open person to all kind of people, which represents her understanding and caring with anybody. As classmate I admire that qualities between her others.

Johanna is learning to speak English at La Guardia Community College. She has already taken ESL 97 and ESL 98, but she still thinks that she needs to practice her grammar. She really wants to be able to speak English fluently so she can move on and major in Computer Programming.

She is a very nice and bright girl and I’m sure that she will do just fine now in ESL099.

I would like to introduce you to my friend Johanna Pimentel which I just met at La Guardia Community College.
Johanna came to United States on December 21, 1995. She was born on April 1st, 1978 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Her first language is Spanish. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her brother, cousin and sister in law.
Before she came to class every day she's in her job. Johanna is home health aid. After work she gets to school by train.
She chose La Guardia because she thinks it's a very good college. She already finished two courses here: ESL 097 and ESL 098. At this time she received her High School Diploma and Bank cashier. Her major is Computer Program. She thinks that three hours with her homework is good for her.
Johanna's favourite number is 01, colors white and blue and favourite food paste and soup. She really likes volleyball and swimming, that's why for her the best season is summer. This summer she went to the pool every single week and she really enjoyed that. Johanna likes to wear short dresses. She listens to all kind of music.
She has also something to say about politics. Bill Clinton in Johanna's opinion was the best president of the US. She thinks that Rudy Giuliani was a very good mayor and he did his job well. If she would has chance to be a mayor she will try to close the entire stores which sales cigarettes to teens and all the illegal clinics that practise an abortion.
Johanna miss her family a lot of, that's why she thinks about coming back to her home country.
My request to her is to keep doing good and always trying to get whatever she wants, which is very important in life.
It's kind of amazing thing to learn about our class members and hopefully I'm not the only one who enjoy that kind of activities.

The most interesting thing about Laguardia is the chance of meeting people from all over the world; like Johanna, originally from Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo, born in April 4, 1978, living now in Brooklyn with a cousin, brother and sister-in-law, studying computer programming as her major and someday would like to learn how to paint too.
She loves the summer for many reasons: to wear short dress, to swim in the pool, to play volleyball, etc.. She also loves to eat pasta, the blue and the white colors, the carnival, Christmas and New Year in her country.
Like Johanna, I also think that Laguardia is a very good college and hopefully we should get the necessary skills to succeed in our lives!
