Introductory Profile: About Pedro Sanchez

My interviewee was my father, Pedro P. Sanchez. He grew up in a small ranch on the West Coast of Central Mexico. He grew up in a poor family and had to make many sacrifices as a child in order to support his 13-person family. Food was a scarcity, and farming was the only source of money that her family had. Neighbors, including my Mother, helped out my Fatherís family on their daily struggle.

When my father immigrated to the U.S, He was 33 years-old and was already married to my mother. My parents lived in a small apartment in the suburbs of Houston. There they lived for two years, earning money and adjusting to an easier life. Two years later, in 1993, my parents moved to Austin and decided to have their first child. They continued to work and lived their lives as normal. Eight Years later, I was born. By this time, my parents were living in the house that Iím currently living in.
