New York

Grade 4, New York
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic

I interviewed Raquel. She came from the Dominican Repubilc on May 9, 1996. She came to the U.S.A. to give her daughter a better education and life.
The first time she came to the U.S.A. she felt happy because she was on her honeymoon. After her honeymoon she came alone on an airplane. Her husband was waiting for her at the airport. She needed a passport to come to the U.S.A. because she was born in the Dominican Republic. She had friends and family the first time she came to the U.S.A., but she misses her country and the friends and family still living there today. She likes to live here because she has a better life and she has the freedom to get a job she likes.
