Storyboard Text

  • As I walked down the stairs and off the boat, an officer gave me a numbered identity tag so I could go to the Registry Room for the the legal and medical inspections
  • My excitement as my feet touched the ground of the free world was beyond words. I felt millions of weights lift off my chest, and I thought here was a chance for a new beginning
  • I passed the six second test while coming upstairs for the legal inspection. I spoke some English, so I did not need the interpreter. The inspector asked me 29 questions such as "Where were you born?", "Are you married?", etc. I passed the inspection then went downstairs to the ticketing office
  • After I had gotten my ticket, I headed to New York because I heard of the business opportunities and the many manufacturing companies they had there. My first impression of the U.S. was not what I was expecting... the persecution here was almost as bad as back home. I couldn't go a day without being mocked or teased because of my appearance or accent. I honestly thought it would be different here
  • HAHAHA! Go back to your country
  • I went to a blacksmith place in hopes of a job, but they would not hire me because they thought an immigrant would not be able to do the job well enough. While talking to the owner, he made fun of my accent, and I doubt he even thought I was asking for a job. I did not understand the language well, I had no money, and I did not feel very welcome. Overall, I do not believe this was worth coming to America at this point
  • This man is speaking gibberish, I hope he's not asking for a job
