I went to United States

September 20, 2008

In 1990 I got scholarship from Malaysian Goverment to pursue a post graduate in the United States. I went with my family. I did a master degree in Economics at the University of Detroit Mercy. We lived in Ferndale, about 2 kilometers from the University of Detroit Mercy. I still remember, we stayed in 9th Mile Road, Ferdale. But I can’t remember the apartment where we stayed.

It was Fall when we came. I remember we bought a car named Pontiac which cost only $1,200. My first challenge when we came was to find shools for my two kids. My first kid, Adilla was 9 year old; the second is Iqwan (6 years old); and Aqeeda was 6 months.
