Country of Origin: Taiwan

May came to America thinking that it was a very big country. She came in 1975 to study. May was born and emigrated from Taiwan. Her uncle came before her. That was her only family member. She thought that the trip was very exciting. The one special thing that she brought with her was a cross necklace. She was a student in Taiwan, but when she came here, she studied in law school. May has not gone back to Taiwan a lot, but her parents come here to visit. May is now an attorney. Now she thinks that America is a land of opportunity, hope, and a land of freedom, compared to her native country.
