"Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from a St. Paul High School" is a collection of thirty personal essays written by immigrant students from LEAP High School in St. Paul, Minnesota. Includded with each essay is a link to a first-persona video narrative. Comming from thirteen different countries, these young people share their life journeys in their own words. Some fled xenophobia, others came to be reunited with family, and all left behind loved ones: parents, children, friends. Throughout it all, each of these young people exhibits tremendous resiliency, courage, and unbashed hope as they imagine their future in this new country. The digital and written narratives in this book are exceptional resources for anyone looking to learn more about the human side of the immigrant experience. By seeing ourselves reflected in each of these stories, we begin to build the necessary bridges that will bring us towards a deeper understanding of one another. Including: study guide, glossary, and links to video narratives.
