Interview Summary

Wang details the journey her husband made to America before they were married. He lived in Philadelphia for ten years, and now has his citizenship. She then briefly describes three main reasons for immigrating: education, air pollution, and food safety. Wang shares her family's experience under the one-child policy in China. She describes the education environment in China as highly competitive and pressured. Wang remembers first visiting Philadelphia for three months in 2016, returning pregnant to Hong Kong where she gave birth to her son, then came back to Philadelphia in December 2018. She illustrates differences between American and Chinese culture. Wang notes the older look and and feel of Chinatown as a result of an older generation of Chinese immigrants that have settled there. She hopes for a new flow of immigrants to come and bring some of China's modernization to the area.
