About this submission

I left my home along with my friends and family at 15 to study in the United States. 4 years later, I decided to reflect on my departure and to reconnect with my family. Because of COVID, I haven't been able to go home to Sikkim in over 2 years. I recorded two interviews discussing stories from the collective past of our family as well as individual ones. I was learned of my parents' love story before I was born, and pieced together parts of my childhood and started process how my departure has affected my relationship with my parents.
