Senior Immigrant Interview Name: Samantha Doccy Date: 9/14/14 I interviewed a woman named Maribel. Maribel is 83 years old and lives in live at Wood River Village in Bensalem. She moved in 1964 because she wanted her children to grow up in the United States. “I wanted my children to live where they would not be judged for who they were.” Maribel grew up in a very small town in Puerto Rico that was not very accepting of people who were different. She had a gay brother at a time when this was considered unacceptable.
Negi's mother travels to New York a few times to see a specialist about Raymond's foot. After traveling to New York, Negi's mother decided there would be more opportunities for her family there.

By the time he was fourteen, there was no money for private education. His father's alcohol addiction and ill health kept him from training Arnold in the family pharmacy business, but his mother's family connections kept them on track with money. In 1755, Arnold, attracted by the sound of a drummer, attempted to enlist in the provincial militia for service against the French, but his mom said no. In 1757, when he was sixteen, he did enlist in the militia, which marched off toward Albany and Lake George. Arnold served for 13 days.
While he had a rough start to life, with his dad dying unexpectedly when he was only three years old, he came out with a very successful life for himself. In his family, education was a vital part of life, and his mom would give them the best possible education that she could. Moore states: “My mother decided soon after our move to the Bronx that I was not going to public school. She wasn’t a snob, she was scared… But no matter how much the world around us seemed ready to crumble, my mother was determined to see us through it. When we moved to New York, she worked multiple jobs…whatever she could do to help cover her growing expenses” (47).
The reason Miller chose the subject of false accusation is most likely because the people of his generation accused him of involvement with the Communist party which was analogous to what witchcraft would have been in the late seventeenth century. Based entirely on the Salem witch trials, The Crucible does a superb job of turning that devastating time period into an entertaining yet tragic play. Arthur Miller, born on October 17, 1915, in New York City, was a famous American playwright who composed many literary masterpieces. Born into a wealthy family, Miller was accustomed to having whatever he desired, that is, until the Great Depression caused his family to go bankrupt. During this time of uncertainty, Miller worked several jobs to earn enough money to pay for his college.

After four years of saving, the day they waited for was here and they were all set and excited. Everything changed when they arrived to London because there were few arguments, Yemi said she doesn’t like it here in England and she then later moved to Ireland with her kids leaving her husband who refused to follow her to Ireland. They both lived separate lives for approximately 11years but he did come to visit the odd times. Adapting to a new environment wasn’t easy for her at all as English wasn’t her first language and she also felt sick at times due to the change of the weather.
Edgar Allan Poe is an American author and poet who wrote a number of infamous poems about gothic related things. Some of these poems sometimes are told through a perspective of a crazy man. The quote comes from the poem, the Raven, his most successful and well-known poem ever created. 6.18. The phrase after the semicolon is a good example of personification because it connects the fire in the fireplace to the human quality of dying.
