I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Tita, a mexican migrant who has lived and survived in the United States for over 20 years. One of the most touching anecdotes that she shared was the one of her as a little girl climbing out the window to talk to the stars. This moment perfectly encapsulates the spirit that has driven Tita to not only come to the United States but also the desire that she still holds to achieve better things and a better life for her family. Although she no longer has a mango tree to climb, she still holds the desire to reach out and talk to the stars.
The menu on top of the page can be used to navigate through the different chapters of Tita’s life. This is the result of interviews and the willingness of Tita to share her story. I am very grateful for the opportunity to share in Tita’s experiences and history and I hope you will as well.
