This paper explores the writer's experiences as an immigrant in the form of a personal narrative. The topics explored are the writer's and her family's adaptation to life in the United States, as well as her journey to find her ethnic identity, and how her life experiences have influenced many of her decisions and values. A review of the literature regarding topics and issues faced by Latino immigrants is included along with literature on the importance of narratives. The writer concludes with a discussion about the lessons learned through the narrative process in addition to social work implications regarding immigration.
