Storyboard Text

  • I was raised right here in the Dominican Republic, but my family is leaving the country due to the cruel dictator, Rafael Trujillo. My father was involved in a plan to overthrow the dictator, and it's too dangerous for my family to stay here.
  • You could never over throw me, you fools!
  • Immigrating to the U.S. ameliorated my inspiration for writing, especially having to pay close attention to learning the English language.
  • I graduated from Abbot Academy in 1967, attended Connecticut College, then transferred to Middlebury College in Vermont, where I then graduated in 1971. I also earned my Master's Degree in creative writing from Syracuse University in 1975.
