Hi there! My name is Aurora Ricci and I am an Italian immigrant. My family boarded this boat in hopes of a better life but I am scared.
Like many other immigrants, Aurora and her family are travelling by boat.
Aurora is one of the many immigrants that faced hardships leaving her country. In her home country, Italy, she lost her sister to disease because her parents had no money to treat her. They decided to move to New York in hopes of making more money and the prospect of Aurora having a better life.
Back in Italy, Aurora had a small home with 2 rooms and a main room. She often sat near the fireplace in the main room with her sister to play
