Bruno’s Moving Story Recap

Listening to Bruno’s story, we gain insight into what initial entry into the new land feels like from a child’s perspective. We hear of missing extended family, downward mobility and living circumstances, the inability to communicate, and so much more. For Bruno, school becomes a refuge. When he starts learning English, he realizes he is a very capable student, in part because he works “20 times harder than everyone else.” Despite the losses and costs, we also hear laughter, the pleasure of finding community, and small moments of joy.
