Hi, I am Laryssa, I am immigrating to the United States from Haiti.
First Time In Boston
Freshman Year of High School At Foxborough High School
OMG!! What Accent Is This?
She is in my French class. She is so good at it.
Did you see the new girl today?
On my way to the U.S.
It was the first time that I have been outside of my country. The summer night was a little chilly. The streets were lit up and I tried to capture every little detail that I could.
Randolph Gas Station
Why is this guy following us tho?
At Foxborough High, all of the kids really were just in awe with me. Even though they have seen black people but the thought of them knowing someone so foreign like me was quite interesting to them.
I honestly don't know! He has been following us since we walked in here.
Everything in Brockton was the complete opposite of Foxborough. It was the second place I have seen so many black folks together. The first was at my church!!
This day was a very unique and very eventful day for me as a black individual. As we walked into the gas station for some snacks I noticed how the front clerk was just staring at me and my cousin. I just felt like something was about to go down.
While we were going through the aisles looking for some snacks and was talking the clerk was now in every aisle that we went into.
