Though my parents had to leave most of their family behind to provide for us, they have done it without second-guessing. My brother was eight and I was six when we ventured out into an unknown path with our mother to our better future. After we arrived from El Salvador, my father tried everything to make us feel at home. His efforts, at the time, were not enough. I missed my family, friends, my home, but most importantly my freedom.

Being the first family generation to a different country has had a massive impact on my family. Isolated from other family such as cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents, my family is unique. Throughout the years I have met other people that also can relate to being the first generation to migrate to a new country.
I was so different from my other classmates, that I wanted to adopt new culture to become “normal”. I had not appreciated what my family has gone through and how their culture was apart of my history. Lastly, when his sister said, “What’s this crap about getting dressed up”(4), demonstrates the difference his family had between the fantasy families seen on television.
