A7 Compose and Create – Narrative of Hyphenated Canadian

I was born in Canada. My parents were not, they moved from Africa right before I was born. The transition for them has been tough. The people here are not exactly accepting to new comers. Everyday, my parents go to work and come home back to the culture they have always known. Everyday, I go to school, get bullied and come home to the only safe place I have ever experienced.

My home is much different then outside. When my few friends came over, they even noticed how my parents have not accepted Canadian culture. They haven’t come to connect with the culture because of how unaccepting the people here have been. The life here is difficult, but definitely a bit better then in Africa.
