POW: Jane Fuller, 9


Sam Walkoff

“Why did you originally move to Australia?”

“My dad was needed as an emergency room doctor there, so he took that job. It was really excited to move because I wanted a new experience outside of St. Louis.”

“How long did you live there?”

“A year and a half.”

“What was your favorite part of living there?”

“I loved the weather because it is always warm there. I also liked that the beach was only ½ a mile away.”

“How did you feel once you got there?”

“When I first got there I was in seventh grade there and not in the U.S because the grade system is different. I was different because their slang is very different, like a water fountain is a bubbler and mashed potatoes and sausage was bangers and mash.”

“Were you sad to move back to the U.S.?”

“Well after a while I had gotten homesick so I was happy to come back and see my friends and family, even though I loved Australia.”
