Country of Origin: Jamaica

My baby-sitter came to America from Jamaica because her husband and daughter were here already. My baby-sitter came in 1983. Her first job was working in a hospital.

My baby-sitter brought a photo album apart from her clothes. My baby-sitter came by plane. She had been to the United States before. Before she came they had to check her chest and she had to fill some papers out.

In school in Jamaica her teachers were nuns and loved to hit students with a cane. She got to school by walking. Her home in Jamaica was a one story house with a porch all around it.
