Why would you want to come to a different country? Would life be any better? Would it be worse? An immigrant is a person who comes from one county goes to another. Immigrants have been coming from the beginning of time. The Puritans were the first people, but there may be others that immigrated before them. My person that I interviewed was Veva Lashaway. She came from Mexico. She decided to come so that she could start a new life. She came for the money and business opportunities. I know this person because she is my Madrina, or godmother/sponsor for Confirmation. I have known her since 1999. This paper will reveal her tale of immigration to the United States. Veva Lashaway looks like she has a black poodle with curls flowing all over, sitting on her head. Like a medium sized dog standing on its hind legs, Veva is that height. Her eyes, like dirt that rain has turned into mud. This 120 pound woman, who looks like she is 20 pounds, walks like she’s floating on clouds. She has rings on two of her fingers. One of them looks like a glass of sparkling champagne. The other looks like the shell of a turtle. She has diamond earrings in her ears that look like a sun catcher glowing from the sun. She has contacts which look like the sun during a lunar eclipse.

established a republic in 1836. After numerous clashes, the U.S.-Mexican War, 1846-1848, resulted in the loss by Mexico of lands north of the Rio Grande River. Dictatorial rule followed in Mexico and led to a period of rebellion and factional fighting. A new constitution was signed on February 5, 1917 finally bringing social reform to Mexico. (theodora.com)
