Writing on Immigration
Immigrating from Uruguay to the United States at age 16 has been one of the most defining experiences of my life. The journey was rich in lessons about abrupt change, loss, resilience and the formation of new dreams. The urge to write about the time when I was an Immigrant Girl produced a 75,000-word memoir. I may self-publish it soon, but at a minimum my kids may choose to read a chapter or two, someday.
