When Alexandra Mai was a freshman, she took a history class that opened a door to her family’s past.
In her History of U.S. Immigration class, Prof. Robert Forrant offered Mai and the other students the opportunity to write their family story. Mai’s parents came to the U.S. from Southeast Asia, and she knew that they had a story of their own, but she knew few of the details.
“I don’t know what I’m getting myself into,” she confessed to Forrant.
