They’re just an ocean away
Culture shock isn’t always a welcoming experience but there are some individuals who anticipate it. Two young women, not even old enough to vote, left their homes for almost an entire year to get the American experience. It was one they will not forget.
They are simply known as Carla and Lenka. If walking the halls of Center Stanton High School, they are the girls recognized only by their first names. Quite possibly because their last names are somewhat difficult to pronounce. The girls arrived before the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year. They were ready to learn, meet new friends and practice their English.
