My mom is Norma. She was born in Mexico and immigrated from Mexico in the year 1991. She came to America to have a better life and freedom. Her brother came to America in 1970. He came to America to give a better life to his family. My mom's trip to America was good. Her first impression was: Is this America? She brought her sons costumes to remind her when her son was little. What she did in her native country was to sell food in the bus station. The schools in her native country compared to America's by same grades and same school days. What she did for fun in her native country was play sports. This is how my mom's life was in Mexico.
