Gilberto Gerena Valentín tells us about his move in 1937 from Puerto Rico to New York

Write an essay where you discuss in detail the reasons for Gerena’s decision to migrate (both personal and structural—those of Puerto Rico at the time), the role (if any) that his family played in the migration, and is entry into New York City (what he worked at, the role of relatives). Your discussion must be comprehensive and you have not only to describe but also to explain Gerena’s personal migratory process.
