I grew up in Michoacan and have been living here ten years with my husband and children. My dad came to work under contract with the bracero program and my mom would always wash, iron, cook. She said she would always work hard to help my dad because the money he would send was not enough to support all of us. This one, the one with yellow shirt. She wants to study at Stanford, San Francisco. She is going to graduate this year and I want her to stay here. I don't want her to leave. But I know she wants more and I respect that.”
