My great-grandma is an immigrant and that is why I chose her for my interview. My great-grandma has 3 sisters and 1 brother. My great-grandma came to America when she was 17 years old . She came to America to join her sister who was already in America. They lived in New York. When she lived in New York she had a job as a doll maker. Then she moved to Florida, where she owns 2 birds as pets. She had four children, who were all girls. She is married to my great-grandfather, who is also an immigrant. My great-grandpa is 90 years old, and my great-grandma is 85 years old. They both live in Florida.
