This interview is conducted with Yesenia Nuñez, one of the staff from Casa Familiar. She moved from Mexico to the US at 17 years old. It took place at Casa’s Recreational Center, within one of their classrooms. The interview consisted of memories of her childhood in Mexico, the conditions of the city and country at the time, her transition to San Diego, the differences between the two countries and what she is doing here. Hearing her stories of her different family members, how much her home in TJ has changed, the emotional challenges of transitioning here and her love for children really made me feel she pulled me into her world. I enjoyed seeing life through her eyes.
