This past month, my mom and I decided to visit some family in New York. We decided to take some touristy stops which happened to be extremely rewarding! Not everyone knows this, but my mom is an immigrant who came from her home country to the US back in the day. Randa and I are second generation, and some people may find that surprising because we do not speak our native language.
When we were in New York, we decided to travel back a little bit since history is my favorite subject. As people know, many immigrants came through Ellis Island in New York. So, we had to make sure this was one of our touristy stops, of course. Come to find out, our mom’s maiden name and our dad’s name is listed up in Ellis Island! It was so cool to see this, so I thought I’d share :)
P.S. Go Yankees!
