Storyboard Text

  • Hi my name is, Akio. Im from a small village in Japan. Work here isnt very nice for a young adult like me. I plan to move to the United States for better jobs and more money! Im super excited to start my new and improved life.
  • The journey to the US was very memorable! The boat i traveled in was very small and was packed with a lot of other people trying to start their new lives. Sleeping was difficult and the storms were scary. Id be lying if i said i never got sea sick, but id do it a million more times if it got me to America!
  • The city was very different than i had expected. I thought it would be a better life for me, and although it was in many ways, i wasnt treated very fair. I came here for better work and religious freedom. But to be honest the Americans took advantage. I was working so many hours a day and i barely got paid anything. It was tough, but i wasnt gonna give up.
  • Although i made more money in the US than i ever could back in Japan, i didnt have enough for a home for a long time. I lived on the street for a while. I didnt realize it until i got here, but not many people liked me, and it was all because of my racial background. I found out that the Asian culture got bashed on the most. I wasnt gonna let that bring me down though!
  • Being an Asian male was tough. I could get punished by law for a lot of things, because not many people liked me i was accused for false accusations. I didnt really understand English and my education was pour so i didnt qualify for that many jobs and i got taken advantage of a lot.
  • The struggle of making it where i am today was very hard. But as tough as it was i accomplished my goal! Now i am making a very good amount of money, and have a wonderful family that i love very much. I plan on taking care of them for as long as they need. I never want them to have to experience some of the hard things i went through!
