Interviewing your parent’s financial past…

Interview your parents or other adults in your families about some of the economic decisions they made when they moved out, moved to a new country or went away to college? What were the obstacles that they faced? What were the opportunity costs? What social factors might have changed when they made their move away from home?

    I interviewed my sister elizabeth she is 23 so she decided to move out and rent her own apartment. Her and her boyfriend and my niece and nephew. Obstacles she faced was not having enough money to pay for her needs and rent & deposit. Her opportunity cost was making the decision to move out over staying home and not spending so much money on rent. Social factors that changed was that now she had to pay bills like electricity and gas and light.

    today i interviewed my mother and when she came to this country. She told me that she had to make a lot of decisions before she left Ecuador to come here. she had to think a lot of things like did she have enough money to leave? Did she have enough money until she got a job? And then she told mi her pros and cons bout this. she said that the good things were that she was going make money to send to my grandmother and my brother but the con of that she wont get to see them. And some of the obstacles she faced once she came here is looking for a place to lived so she wont have to brother my aunt. another thing was looking for a job that will accept her. And she didn’t know english .
