1. What challenges did immigrants face upon arrival in America? Immigrants traveled a hard and long voyage across the ocean to America in hopes of better jobs and futures with less discrimination. When they saw the Statue of Liberty they knew they had arrived at Ellis Island, in New York. The statue was a symbol of hope and freedom to them because they knew better opportunities were awaiting there.
This quotation is an example of the urge to return home “...there is nothing dearer to a man than his own country and his parents, and however splendid…” The quote tells us that while he enjoys the fame and glory of being the hero of the war in Troy, he truly wants to enjoy his home, his family, and would rather leave the glory behind than never see Ithaca again.

In the musical West Side Story, the portrayal of the “Jets” and the “Sharks” highlight the issues of race and ethnicity that impact the formation of identity. In an article, “On Broadway”, Sylviane Gold argues that “musicals have reflected and perpetuated the racial rifts and injustices of American society” (81). West Side Story brings across the racial and ethnic divide of an America dealing with issues of identity and an influx of immigrants both in terms of its presentation of the character as well as the influence behind these characters. At first glance, the most obvious issue brought across by the musical would be that of colour. From the opening, ‘the Sharks are Puerto Ricans, the Jets an anthology of what is called “American”’ (137).
As Oprah Winfrey once said, “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” Adventures are both rewarding and life-changing; they continue to be remembered all throughout a person’s legacy because ultimately, the person who went on the adventure went solely to undergo the long journey ahead of them. Interestingly enough, the bigger picture of adventure, both an exciting and a nerve-racking experience one faces can often create a positive bias for someone else since he or she is in favor of all what went into making the adventure so memorable and illuminating. Similarly, Jon Krakauer, the author of the national bestseller Into the Wild, has a positive bias towards the main protagonist of the book, Christopher McCandless. Christopher McCandless embarked on a journey to Alaska, something he had always dreamt of doing. Hitchhiking to Alaska changed how McCandless chose to live and view his life, which explains one of the key factors in why Krakauer has such a favorable bias towards Christopher McCandless.

The musical’s revolutionary twist on the classic Broadway genre to incorporate hip-hop music showcases America’s diverse population through music and theater. Miranda links these ideas to the music he creates by purposefully crafting each individual character’s unique musical sound to hip-hop and by alluding to cultural aspects of the genre itself to celebrate its place in society and what it has achieved over the years despite the struggle that comes with being a person of color. Though Hamilton faces criticism for being historically inaccurate, the “inaccuracies” of casting historically white figures as people of color highlights the musical’s strong hip-hop influences. By doing this, Miranda is able to generate discussion around the importance of embracing the diversity that lies at America’s very foundation as well as what needs to be done to promote the equal treatment of the minority population that is not only an important part of America’s past but also its
