I got to America a week before 9/11. I went to work for a Filipino family in Burbank (California). I came here on a three-month visa, but I stayed with them for three years. I got paid $250 a month as their live-in nanny. Compared to what I was making in the Philippines, it was a lot for me. Even when you’re working hard, you’re going nowhere there.
