America is a nation of stories. Every American has travelled through time and space, and each journey is a unique story. In this series, we share the journeys of our fellow Americans, whether around the neighborhood, across the country, or across the world as we explore what it means to be American in the third century of our democracy.
Our “My American Story” series begins with Dr. Monika White. From pre-World War II Europe, fleeing the Nazis, to war-time Shanghai, and from there to Duluth, Minnesota, join gerontologist Monika White as she shares about her and identical twin sister Gitta’s journey from Japanese-occupied China to the snows of Minnesota – and California sunshine.
