What is your perception of America?

Popularity 6Viewed 2025 times 2014-12-17 22:58 |System category:Life| What, your, perception

<div>I have a foreign exchange student that lives with us this year. She is from Taiwan. After being here 6 months I asked her how she liked it? Especially, how did she like the people? She told me she was a little shocked at first. Most of her perceptions of what we Americans were like came from the NBA ( pro basketball) and from movies. When she came she thought most would be rich, athletic, and incredibly nice. She thought the land of opportunity would mean everyone succeeds here. She thought by now she would be on her second or third boyfriend and have a lot of socials things she would be doing. She has not even come close to a boyfriend, and the only things she does social are if I take her.What are your perceptions of America? Are they unrealistic? America is a great place, but it is not perfect. Is it better than China? I am not so sure? What do you think? Please enlighten me.
