Transcript of Migration Biography
It was the year of 2026 and there was a war going on in California forcing me to move. I was only nine-teen years old. I was scared and I didn't know what would happen when I migrated. I was moving to Tennessee because I had some family there.
I got to Tennessee by taking a plane. I migrated all the way from California to Tennessee. I went all the way from California to Oklahoma, and Oklahoma to Tennessee. It was not a straight flight, I had to take two planes. It took about 3 hours and a half to get there (not including the time I spent at the airport).
I went to Nashville, Tennessee. I chose Nashville because my family (not all of my family, just some) lives there. They shared their home with me and looked after me while my parents weren't with me , well, until I was old enough to move out and live on my own, because my parents never came. My parents said I'd be safer with my family in Tennessee.
Where in Tennessee I went to
When I got to Tennessee the first thing I did was get to know the family that I only knew by pictures. They took me to places that were completely different from the places that I knew back at California. I had to find a school where I could finish studying for my career and begin it. I also had to find a job to work at while I was still studying just to help out in the family.
What I did when I got there
Why I migrated to Tennessee
I faced several challenges/hardships. The greatest challenge I faced was leaving my parents behind in California. Another challenge I faced was leaving behind everything (almost everything) that I owned. Also, I was used to having my own room and my own stuff, but I was forced to share a room and almost everything else with my cousin. I was not very used to the way my family did things but I had to learn.
I changed my community in many ways. In my new community, nobody really talked to each other or even knew each other but I changed that when I started the 'Get to Know You' program which led to new friendships and communication in the community. Also, in my community there were no fast-food restaurants like there were in California but I changed that too by opening the first ever fast-food restaurant in all of Tennessee.
