If I could have three wishes they would be the following:

For my 1st wish is that poverty would disappear in the world, because I see people who have nothing to eat.

My 2nd wish would be to remove the hatred people have about the differences of races. People should be able to see each other regardless of the color of their skin, and help each other.

And for my final wish I would wish for a world without borders or wars.

I am 28 years old and have lived in America since I was 14 years old. The life here in this country is very good for all the opportunities given to me. Better than in my country of Mexico, but speaking for me is hard, so I decided to learn English to communicate better, make new friends, and express myself better.
