Hi, my name is Sydney and my artifact is a picture of my mom and my aunt. This is important to my mom because it has my mom's sister in it and we don't get to see her often, the picture was also taken in Jamaica which is where my mom was born.  The picture was taken in 2002. When she took this photo she was hanging out with friends and driving her dad's car, she was about 23 years old. And the reason it's special to me is because I get to see her when she was younger and see what it was like in Jamaica.  The reason I chose this picture is the same reason why it's special to me: it shows her experience in Jamaica. And it connects to my mom because she immigrated to the United States for school at the age of 24, she was very excited. She was very sad to move away from her family and friends but in her new school she got many new friends and new experiences. She also got free french fries at her school, how exciting is that! Who doesn’t love french fries haha. The question I have for my mother is would you ever want to move back to Jamaica? And why? My other question is other than your family and friends, what else do you miss? And that's it! I hope you enjoyed reading this.
