"When I first came to the United States my response to the new environment was often physical. I often felt that I was living in somebody else’s body and I felt like I was dropped from the sky and granted this new body. I had the same mind, but I didn’t know how long my arms were. And everything was awkward, so it took me a long time to adjust myself. Every corner of the street was strange and foreign, so you have to create a new relation to this new environment."
