Country of Origin: Ireland

Deirdre, my baby-sitter, came to America from Northern Ireland on March 4, 1996. My baby-sitter came to make a better life and to see more of the world. Her aunts and uncles came to get more money.

She brought photos of her family and her necklace but it is broken. The plane trip was horrible. She had to fill in not a lot of papers but some. Then she came to America.

She thought it was awful. She settled in the Bronx because she had family there. But now she loves it here.
