Sruti Swaminathan, Children of Immigrants
Part of my Children of Immigrants series depicting portraits of this community in the United States. "Growing up, we ate traditional Indian food for breakfast and dinner every day and I would have had it for lunch, too, but unfortunately I was too embarrassed to bring Indian food to school. But if I could go back, I would have changed that."

Anna Sowa, Children of Immigrants
Part of my Children of Immigrants series depicting portraits of this community in the United States. "I grew up with ‘When I was your age…’ stories describing how my parents had to stand in line for two hours just to receive a loaf of bread during Communist times. Their difficult experiences directly shaped their lives and indirectly shaped my life, because I continue to think about how fortunate I am to live a more comfortable life."
