What started as an investigation into my family led to a broader understanding of migration & immigration. It led me to uncover that I am not the cultural identity I was raised to believe. What I took away from the whole experience is that I am not an Italian-American or from Italian roots, but rather a Greek-Arabic-Middle Eastern-North African mutt. As a second generation, via my surname, American, I can say that I am not an American or of Italian decent, but rather a child of the world & mixed cultures.
