My name is Samantha. My friends call me Sam or Sammy. I live in the city of freedom, Miami. Many people who live here have come from somewhere else. Miami must be one of the biggest melting pots in the United States. Most of the people who live here have come from Cuba to escape Fidel Castro and his government. Since he has taken over, Castro made the island of paradise a communist country. I also have many friends and neighbors whose families originated from other Caribbean islands and Latin America. All of them who have come to live here have come with one main goal — opportunity.
