This is an autobiographical paper in which the author recounts her personal story of coming to the United States as an immigrant and discusses her ideas and perceptions of what it means to be a minority in the US.
From the Paper:"I was born in the Dominican Republic as were my parents and every generation in my family before that. My younger brother was the first to be born in the United States and my sister has just recently become a naturalized citizen. Being part of a family of immigrants as well as being an immigrant myself has left me with a very high salience of ethnicity. I lived in my home country until I was five years of age and I sort of expected to be transformed into an "American". I did not realize that I still had parents who had been raised in the Dominican Republic and to whom culture and traditions were still very important. I soon learned that although I was to become Americanized, my parents were not going to allow any of us to lose where we came from."
