Just go ahead,
there is nothing to fear.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 300-plus languages are spoken in this nation's homes — a number that more than doubles when we add unique country/language pairs, so that a Spanish speaker from Spain is counted separately from a Spanish speaker from Cuba.

My goal with this project is to speak to one of each of them and share their stories, so that we might better understand the rich diversity of thought and expression at work in the United States. In doing so, we are creating a portion of this country, made by the people who have experienced love and sorrow, loss and freedom.

"Just go ahead, there is nothing to fear" is the English translation of the Lithuanian participant's expression seen in the tile above.

If you speak a language not represented here and would like to participate, please give me a shout at dianavostrom@gmail.com. Please note that some interviews have been conducted but not posted yet.
