A foreigner in my childhood home

Daryn Crowell
Denver, CO

I am a US citizen but my family moved to Peru when I was two years old. Basically my whole childhood was in Peru. I grew up with much of society telling me I could not consider myself in any degree Peruvian and that I was from the U.S. However, in the US in some respects I felt more like a foreigner than in Peru. It took me many years to reconcile my Peruvian and U.S. identities.
