Mrs. Arsenia Nicanor Journey_interview by: Gay David
My oral history project is about Mrs. Arsenia Nicanor's memories and struggles as a Filipino worker immigrant in America. Mrs. Nicanor came to the U.S. with her two daughters. They came with R1 visa or Religious working visa. They are all Christian Science Nurses. She loves America because she is earning money by the hour instead of per day, as she did in her homeland. According to her, the welfare system here in America is better because anyone who needs it can get free food, free health care and financial aide.
