Name: Guadalupe Gaspar, Place of origin: Guatemala, Place of residence: Cincinnati, Ohio, Gender: Female, Occupation: Housekeeper
Guadalupe works as a housekeeper in Liberty, OH. She works in my parent’s house, along with other houses in the área. Her husband runs a business for gardening and landscaping. I have met Guadalupe in the house and was interested in hearing her story. She was willing to help me with the project and invited me to her house for the interview. Her family lives in a mobile home, decorated beautifully. We did the interview on her sofa in the presence of her daughter and relative. Guadalupe was enthusiastic to communicate in Spanish with me. Throughout the interview, I was grateful for her openness to talk about her serious experiences. The interview encompassed many issues, related to immigration, like the violence in Central America and the crossing to the United States.
