First Person American is an initiative focusing on stories of modern immigrants in the US, and explore what it means to be American through the lens of the immigrant in an expressive, personal and narrative style. First Person American is a collaboration with The Peopling of America® Center, a project of The Statue of Liberty–Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. First Person American aims to change the public’s perception of immigrants and to interject a new voice through deep and poignant portraits of people who immigrated to America.
