Through part of the “Becoming American” project, I collaborated with Justyna (Koscielniak) Gano, who is a senior at Illinois Wesleyan University. This collaborative research focuses on Justyna’s acculturation process, detailing her journey to America and the challenges she and her family have faced as immigrants. It also emphasizes the importance of family support in Justyna’s search for success in America.
