Over the next few days, we will be publishing a series of interviews we did with Mike Alvarez, a PhD candidate in Communications at University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
Using the StoryCorps app, we did these biographical interviews as a volunteer project for StoryCorps' and White House's #myaapistory initiative to document Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage. Mike generously donated his time to tell us stories about his immigrant experience, having immigrated from the Philippines to the United States (specifically Jersey City) when he was ten years old.
We have cut the interviews into vignettes that we hope stand on their own. We look forward to hearing your thoughts, and it's not too late to tell you story to us for this project! Contact us to set up an interview! Happy listening!
