In Attire
Relationship: Child of im/migrant

I interviewed my mom because she is an immigrant. She decided to come here because she thought that the life here is a little bit more easier. She also thought that it was going to be better for her future family, such as education, dream jobs, etc. And in Mexico when you work you can only basically afford food. For my mom her object is a ring, that is real gold with a blue gem, and one crystal on both sides. This means a lot to her because it’s a tradition to pass it on to their daughter. So my mom gave it to me and before that her mom gave that to my mom and so goes on. This is somehow similar to other immigrants because most people need to be trusted if they want to help others. For example they could easily take you to another place. And you might as well live your whole life there. And this ring is filled with a huge amount of trust and love, to my generation.
