I committed a crime, which I regret. I arrived to the county 22 months ago; I got in prison after 8 months of being in the county. Here I find myself, well, the life. Here it is very different from life outside, because here is sadder because of the freedom that one was used to. You eat less; everything is different from the outside, lots of restrictions. From what you see here, there are different races of people. Here there are problems daily that you have to know to dodge them to live without problems. Well the first days I felt depressed but God has given me strength to surpass all of this but God is big and has given me everything to survive. This is my entire story.
