TRANSCRIPT

My name is Rachel Chacko. I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I came to the United States March 5, 1983. We lived in North 9th Street. Next day family friends visited us. They gave me some instructions. If anyone rings the doorbell do not open it. The second, if the fire alarm goes off run fast to the nearest door with kids. That afternoon we went to St. Joseph's hospital to fill up some applications about the nurses' job. We rode through Center City, Philadelphia to see the City Hall and Liberty Bell. Then we ate at the Kentucky Fried Chicken then went back home.
