My name is Sylvia. I came to America because I wanted to see what it was like. I had to answer questions and show signed papers to be allowed into America.

My first impression of America was that it was beautiful. I came to America on a plane. The trip was very good. My aunt and uncle came before me. I do not know why. I came from Barbados.

When I got here I settled in Brooklyn. It was not hard to find a new home. I used to make clothes. In America I became a sitter. It was not difficult to find a job.
