Part 1 -- Our Immigrant Roots And Shared Experience -- Trinidad And Tobago by Hills Review published on 2019-06-11T01:31:04Z For a recent narrative project, five High School East seniors were instructed to interview a person with a story worth telling. The five unknowingly chose the same topic: immigration. Students interviewed family members about their experiences moving to the United States and what it was like adjusting to life here. They talked with relatives from Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand, Egypt, Korea, and El Salvador. After listening to each other’s projects they got together to discuss them. Although they are all very different people who never got together before, they all have this one thing in common. PART 1: Trinidad and Tobago There are many different circumstances in which immigrants come to the US. In this segment, Devin Kassebaum speaks with his grandmother who came to this country in 1974 as a mother of two from Trinidad and Tobago. In the discussion that follows, students share experiences of their own parents coming to this country and struggling with the immigration process. They also consider the laws that impact becoming a citizen and the dreams of immigrants.
