I interviewed my dad and his name is Efrain. He was born in Lares,Puerto Rico. He came to America in 1983 for better oppurtunities. he had one sister,and two brothers come here before him. They came here3 for better oppurtunities too. My dad said it was like a ˘dream come true÷ on his trip to America. His first impression of America was a different culture. He didnĂ t bring anything special from Puerto Rico. In his native country he worked as a farmer for his dad. In America he works for a chemical plant in Waukegan, illinois. His school in his native country is similar to ours What he did for fun in his native country was play volleyball,softball,and go camping.
