Notes

Abstract: This study examines research on the immigration of a young girl into the United States from South America and her experiences of becoming a part of American society. These experiences, both positive and negative, greatly influenced her decision to focus on a career in education. Many immigrants lose the aspects of their native cultures that once defined their individual humanism. This is apparent in the increase of collective assimilation to American culture in many immigrant groups. The authors' research centered on an individual who embraced her Latin roots and gained a desire "not to study exotic others, but why others exoticised her."
