Think about it, you are born and raised in your homeland and at age 18, you and your parents in their 50s and 60s pack up and leave to a place you have only ever visited. You leave everything behind in an age before the internet and cell phones, in an age where you needed an operator to make an overseas call – and you go to America in search of what exactly? You are not even quite sure. But you have dreams and aspirations. You want to be a journalist, a lawyer, a warrior for the underdog, a soother of ills.
