Are you an immigrant? Will you tell us a little about your life?
I’m just curious – this is not intended to spark any debate about whether immigration is a good thing or a bad thing, how to protect borders, blah-dee-blah. So if that’s what you wanna talk about, go do it somewhere else, ‘kay?
Just some ideas – things I’m curious to know. If you’re not comfortable answering the questions, by all means, skip ‘em.
Are you living in a country other than the one in which you were born? Where were you born, and where do you live now? How old were you when you moved to your new country, and how long have you been there? Why did you leave your birth country? Have you been back to visit since your move?
What kind of challenges or culture-shock moments did you encounter (if you were old enough to remember)? What do you miss about your birth country? What are you happiest to have left behind?
