Salaiz 1Christina SalaizProfessor Lisa WilliamEnglish 1B1July 2016America Changed the Garcia GirlsAfter the Garcia Family was forced to move to The United States from the Dominican Republic, many things had changed for the four Garcia daughter’s. There were many changes with this move, somewhere physically (how the girls looked different), mentally (their mental issues), sexually, and the language barrier. The girls try to teach their cousins and aunts about feminism and how different it was between The United States and the Dominican Republic. The family is used to be the upper class in the Dominican Republic, once moving to the United Statesthey are seen as middle class. The four girls are treated differently at school. My goal in this essay is to compare the Garcia girl’s life between their “home”, Dominican Republic and their The United States. In the first section, I would like to talk about how the four Garcia girl’s life had changed when they were forced to move to The United States, with the difference of language barriers. Being the oldest, Carla had the hardest time with the language change and her accent she was teased at school because of this. Yolanda had the hardest time with the English vocabulary and how to translate words. She would misunderstand or miscommunicate many things when peoplewere talking to her. Yolanda had a tough time with talking about sex or sexual tone.
