Far Away Lessons

Jennie - Palatine, Illinois
Entered on May 12, 2009

I immigrated to the United States sixteen years ago from South Korea. Two summers ago, for the first time since I’ve left, I revisited the country my mother decided to leave. Half way across the world, I came to understand, for the first time, the extent of my mother’s sacrifice.

Age Group: 18 - 30
