Notes

Abstract:
For SPOHP's Summer 2013 Oral History Seminar class. Yesica Ramirez and her family moved to the United States in 2000 with the hopes of earning enough money to build a house to return to in their home town of Michoacán, Mexico. Yesica has been in the states ever since, isolated by language barrier to her job, family, and church. In this podcast, with the help of an interpreter, she describes her life in the United States, including this isolation, which extends even to her own children, as they know English, go to school, and bring back homework with which she cannot help them, as well as the lack of healthcare options facing immigrant workers.
