Life is meaningful if there is beauty in life. I'm Eakub Khan. I'm from the beautiful country of Bangladesh. I was born on May 4, 1979. I've lived here since 1998. I came here to get an education and better life. Now I'm going to tell you something about myself.
I'm living with one of my friends who is also from Bangladesh. I miss my parents, brothers, sisters, friends and relatives because they are living back home. I finished my school education in Bangladesh. My father is a school teacher and I studied in his school. I fell in love with a beautiful girl when I was a school boy. I also miss her. I love my parents and country very much. That's why I went back to visit my native country last year.
I live in Woodside, which is a nice neighborhood. I have a driving license but I don't have any car. In fact, I don't own anything expensive. I have driven a yellow taxi since 1999. I usually work two days a week, but now I'm not working at all. I like living in New York City because I can make good money here. I took ESL097 at LaGuardia College last semester. My major is Computer Science. I have a computer in my house and I often use it to learn English. I also like to type, but I can't type so fast because I'm a beginner. I study a lot after my class because I want to learn English and pass ESL099. I want to get a better life by studying, but my English is not good at all. My first language is Bengali.
I have some hobbies which include watching TV, swimming, reading story books, and so on. My favorite game is cricket. My favorite color is green. I like summer better than winter. My favorite food is rice and fish. I like to enjoy holidays. I don't like Mayor Giuliani very much because he doesn't like poor people and immigrants at all. I like President Bill Clinton very much because he helps immigrants. I like some kinds of people who are really helpful and friendly. I don't spend much time enjoying myself in New York City because I don't have enough time. However I have been to Washington DC, New Jersey and Texas.
That's some information about myself. I'm happy and lucky to get a chance to study at LaGuardia College. I'll try my best to succeed. My life will be beautiful if I get a good education. I hope I will, and I am looking forward to the time when I graduate.
