My name is Raewyn. I'm from Britain. I got to America in January 1988. I was sad because I had to leave lots of friends behind.

I came to America for a job offer. None of my family members came to America because they did not get a job offer and my mother was so sick that my brothers stayed with her and I went to America so I could get money for my family.

Now every year I send money to my family and my mom is getting better. I think she's getting a lot better. She'll be all right.
