My Grandfather
My Grandfather

This picture is a picture of my grandfather. My grandfather's name is Hiro, and he is seventy-two years old. He moved here with his wife and two children in 1972. He came to the United States at the age of 23. He came to the United States of America to create a better life for his children. He also came here to start a business to support him and his family. When he moved here he became a tailor. Life in India was hard, they were not very financially stable, my grandfather worked as a clothing designer. My grandfather moved to the United States of America from India in 1974. This is significant to me because if my grandfather decided to not move my life would be completely different. I wouldn't have the same opportunities that I have here in the United States of America. I am very grateful he moved here. Here are a few words my grandfather would like to share from his experience. My name is Hiro Dasani. I moved to the USA with my family to start a new business.  I had experience in trading in Gift items and apparel. I continued in this trade and imported these items from India. I am blessed to have the support of my family and with hard work and god's blessing, I have been successful. I Am very happy to move to the United States of America, as this gave my children a good education and better opportunities.
