I've interviewed an immigrant. Her name is Mrs. Jarquin she was born in Veracruz, Mexico, 1976. What she brought with her was clothes, and her husband came with her. She came in a plane. When she arrived she saw alot of different things and it was a challenge for her. She was excited and nervous, because she didn't know what was going to happened next, but they changed her name to Karina Matil. Now her name is Karina Jarquin. She came here 6 or 7 years ago, but it was hard for her to learn the language. She misses alot of people in Mexico, her parents and brothers are in Mexico too. She misses alot of her friends. Also, she doesn't really like the weather in Illinois. It reminds her of her country.
