  1. 1. Part One: Who do you think you are? By: Alejandro Capristo Geography 10
  3. 3. I am 19 years old, with a loving and carrying Mom and Dad. I have 2 brothers who are older than me, unfortunately, because the youngest child is always the one who is playfully beaten by the oldest.
  4. 4. Mom • My mother is from Mexico. She was born in El Grullo Jalisco. My mother has 4 brothers and 1 sister. She is 48 years old.
  5. 5. Dad • My father is from Mexico. He was born in El Limon Jalisco. He has 4 brother 4 and sisters. He is 52 years old.
  6. 6. Oldest brother • My older brother is from the United States. He was born in Pomona California. He is 23 years old.
  7. 7. Brother • My brother is also from the United States. He was born in Chino, California. He is 20 years old.
  8. 8. Me • I was born in Pomona as well. I am 19 years old. I live with my Mother, father, 2 brothers and my grandma.
  9. 9. Grandmother • My grandma is 90 years of age. She had 17 kids, unfortunately 12 of them only lived to be 1-5 months. My grandmother makes the best cookies.
  10. 10. Why did my parents move here?
  11. 11. • The reason my parents came to the United States from Mexico was simply because they wanted to have children. Their desire was to have at least 2 kids.
  12. 12. Why my parents moved (continued) • They also wanted a bright future for us and agreed to get married and move from Mexico to the United states.
  13. 13. Where did they first come to? • The first place my parents rented an apartment was in Pomona, California. They had their first child. (My older brother)
  14. 14. Where did they first come to? (Continued) have they moved?• After 1 child my parents then decided to move to the City of Chino. After 2 years they had another child ( My brother) and then moved back to Pomona after. About 1 year and a half later, I was born. My dad was not interested in having a third child according to my mother, but she convinced him.
  15. 15. Why they have moved since first arriving? • The reason my mom and dad decided to move was because they were robbed 1 time in the area they were renting.
  16. 16. Where are they now? • We now live in Pomona, California. We live in an apartment. We have not been robbed ever since we moved. The area is nice and the neighbors are all friendly.
  17. 17. Part of wave? • I believe the wave of immigration we belong in may be the 4th wave because it include the Latin America including Mexico. The years are 1918-Present.
  18. 18. What do I think of all this?
  19. 19. • I am grateful for the love my family has showed to my brothers and I. If my parents were never as thoughtful as they were to move from Mexico to the United States, we would possibly be struggling with our school and work.
  20. 20. • I now have no problem with acquiring a job or getting a drivers license or getting help from the government for my education.
