Gold Chain

In Attire
Relationship: Child of im/migrant

America is a place for a fresh start. For my family, coming to America has been an opportunity for a better life. My parents moved here from Mexico and Colombia looking for a chance at a better life, somewhere where hard work  pays off. Many people look at America as somewhere unfair, racist, harmful etc. But even if the country has a lot of obstacles for people who are different and has many social issues, it still always holds opportunities for everyone. You can be anything you want, do anything you want regardless of your race or ethnicity. My mom brought this chain from Mexico when she moved here. When immigrating here she brought more valuable things rather than money. The money would be taxed but with the objects if she ever needed money she could sell it.
