Hello my name is Marco. I am going to be travailing alone to escape the rapid growth of the population in Italy. I heard that America was great and i am very exited to see it. But i am a little sad because i have to leave everything.
Although i am leaving all my friends and belongings back at home, my parents told me that it's for my own good. I'm going to meet my family in America.
Many immigrants traveled in steerage. This was the cheapest way of travel, but many died due to very poor living conditions.
We are just trying to survive on this boat. The conditions here are really bad.
Where are you from? How much money do you have? You have parents? Why are you here? Able to work?
I know that we don't live a luxurious life, but it is just enough... by the way, you start work tommorow.
I have to work? OK if i must then i will, but i have to say this city isn't very welcoming i thought they would accept us better.
I am scared and nervous but this is for my family.
