Storyboard Text

  • Rafia was and still is such a hard worker. Although she had a rough start, she found her way and is now thriving in the world...
  • Woah! This book is all abut the election in Ghana in 2012, the year I came to the United States! The book says that John Mahama, the leader of the National Democratic Congress won over Nana Akufo-Addo, who led the New Patriotic Party. It also states that ever since Ghana became democratic, it was considered one of the more stable countries in West Africa. That's so cool!
  • Every once in a while, Rafia visits her home in Concordia...
  • I decided to immigrate to the United States because I wanted a better life you and Darlene. I knew I wouldn't have been able to bring you along with me at first, but my goal was to work really hard to get you to the United States as soon as possible, and I am so sorry it took 11 years. It shouldn't have taken that long, but it was hard to adjust to this New Jersey, as you and Darlene know. When I first came, I stayed with my cousin who lived in Orange New Jersey. Eventually, I found a job at a hospital and worked with Cecile's sick mother. I was constantly sending you guys money and I always saved some of it for your trip here as well. There was a small set back because around the time I came, 9/11 had occurred, so my visa process was delayed, but not by much. 
  • Mom, I was just wondering, could you tell me about your immigration story? Why did you do it knowing you had two young daughters? Were there any set backs when you went?
  • In June 2017, Rafia was offered to go to Jordan to learn Arabic and how to teach children as part of her school education. She accepted and didn't return to New Jersey until May 2018. Rafia's next adventure is in Morocco, where she will continue her studies. Although she missed her mother when she left them in Ghana, she learned a lot from the experience and it has shaped her into the woman she is today: kind, smart, independent, funny, and strong.
  • I think I like short hair the best.
