Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My mother is a immigrant. She was born in Trinidad, laventile. She came to the United States for a better life for herself and I. I wasn't born yet, she was pregnant with me, she didn't want me to be born in Trinidad. The process she went through in immigration was that she had to sing the national anthem. In her migration she brought with her a recipe from home in Trinidad, which is one of my favorite foods. Buss up shot, which consists of roti skin, pumpkin, channa, and bodi. We use the skin to eat with these like dips. For parties or just dinner this dish would be made. My mother makes it better than anyone else that I have tasted. The skin itself is good as well, but you just don't eat it that way. I just don't eat it, I enjoy it.
