Storyboard Text

  • After days and days of being on a muddy, dirty, uncomfortable ship I finally arrived to America. I was greeted with the Statue of Liberty and felt overwhelmed with the feeling of starting my new life. The boat docked at an island called Ellis Island and they told us that this is where we will become citizens of the United States.
  • I arrive to Ellis Island with one bag and wait in crowded rooms for 5 hours, wondering if I will pass inspection. Dreading the thought of going home after all I've gone through
  • In the city I have a small room that is very rancid. So far America hasn't been as pleasant as I had originally hoped. But maybe my job at the factory won't be as bad.
  • I do not like my job at all. I'm constantly working and if I stop I will be fired! I'm only 16 and I feel so stressed. They only hope i have for better working conditions are the labor unions taking action
  • In the future I hope for better working conditions, better living conditions, and to strive in America. I left Russia hoping for a better life and I have learned that I have to work for that. I truly believe that America will improve and there will be a better life for the next hundreds of generations.
