Albert Nyembwe, Age 64
LISTEN: Albert talks about home.
When you think of the word home, what comes to your mind? (Excerpt from catalog)
“Home is a place where you can express yourself, where you feel good, and where you have a good life . . . a place where you have good relationships with people. Back home, you know your neighbors, you talk to your neighbors all the time and you cannot ignore your neighbors. But when you come to the U.S., you have that feeling like it’s not your house because you cannot talk to your neighbors, and then you are by yourself. Over there in the Congo, you don’t get in your house without greeting all the neighbors . . . . So that gives you those two kinds of feelings, that you are and you are not home. “
