Introductory Profile: About Ahmed Chibib

I interviewed my father's father, Ahmed Chibib. He was born in Cuba and raised in Lebanon until the age of 23 when he moved to America. He worked for IBM as engineer for over 30 years. He is now retired in Austin, Texas.

Ahmed discussed poverty in Lebanon and the process of immigration. The tone of the interview was peaceful, with many pleasant memories. I learned a great deal about my grandfather in this interview. He had many hardships in his childhood, and he was very brave for changing his life by immigrating to America.
