My goal for this project was to give an immigrant’s perspective on identity and belonging. I interviewed my mother who was born in the United States but grew up in Ecuador. I focused on how immigrants begin to feel that they belong in a new country.
Interviewing went well; I enjoyed getting to know more about my mother’s past and identity. It was hard to cut all of the clips exactly the way I wanted them. It was also hard to decide what parts of the interview to include. I learned a lot of new things about storytelling and what makes a story compelling.
