Marta, Mexico, Cincinnati, female, unemployed




This oral history project was very beneficial and I feel like I learned a lot. I met Marta when I volunteered at Education Matters. She goes there to learn and practice English so that she can eventually apply for a job in Cincinnati. Marta is from Mexico, but she came to the United States because her husband was offered a job here. He is fluent in English and can offer the company what they were looking for in Cincinnati. At first, Marta was not sure if she wanted to leave Mexico because all of her family lives there, but the opportunities in the United States were what she was hoping and looking for. I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to interview Marta about her history because she helped me to learn more about the community in Mexico and how it compares to the community that we have here in the United States. She is a very loving and positive person who looks at her life as opportunities and she can really see the love in the world.
