This storyboard does not have a description.
I am Leslie Colin, 14 years old. I was born in the USA but both of my parents are from Mexico. I have lived here in the USA for my whole life.
This is my dad. He is from Mexico and came here when he was 17 years old. He has made many sacrifices for the good of his family.
This is my mom. She is also from Mexico and came here when she was 18 years old. Along with my dad, she has made many sacrifices in order to give her children more opportunities than where she grew up.
Both of my parents thought it would be best to leave Mexico and move to the USA due to the lack of opportunities they had in Mexico. If they moved to the USA, then they would be able to create a family there and their kids would have more opportunities in life.
Coming to an agreement, they both left their homes in Mexico and came here to the USA at a young age. Leaving their parents, brothers and sisters behind along with their culture, was a very big decision and sacrifice to make.
When they arrived to the USA, they had to start from scratch. Only having few family member living here, my parents had a little bit of help but suffered a lot because had no experience with speaking English.
