Holtzmann’s Nuer Journeys, Nuer Lives deeply examines and compares how Sudanese refugees have assimilated into Minnesotan culture. After the Nuer came to the United States, many tried to form smaller communities as well as carry on traditions from Nuer culture. The Minnesotan Nuer lifestyle now accommodates Sudanese traditions through American practices; by using United States methods for their practices, the Nuer have found new ways of living in this country. While these Sudanese refugees have faced many difficulties with keeping steady incomes and finding appropriate academic institutions for their children, many of them have been able to form social groups and begin families. Family life, no matter how altered, will always lie at the core of Nuer interactions; and even though Minnesota has been a generally welcoming state for them, there is hope for the future that the Nuer will have equal opportunities to education and living in financial safety as their fellow white neighbours.

I came into my internship at ForKids aware of some of the programs and resources they provide to the homeless community. What I really found helpful, and informative about my site, was when I attended a department meeting. I was able to meet the supervisors of the different locations of ForKids, from Suffolk to Norfolk. Attending this meeting gave me a better understanding of each individual’s role, and how the agency is run. I’ve already interned for a week, but the meeting made it more clear of the agency’s mission, and how they run their programs.
My success is mostly based from my family. They are the ones that make me strive to be better every single day, and that is probably why I like to talk and write about them a lot. The Writing Collection we did was a bunch of flash draft essays we wrote about events that have changed us or our view on life. Out of all of my flash drafts, the one that was by far the best and most meaningful was the essay I wrote about my family, called “Is Family Really Forever?”. It always amazed me how I could write so much about my family, and that’s when my realization of success with my family hit me.
