Age: 58 Country of Birth: Germany Neighborhood: Hamilton Occupation: Homemaker
What brought you here? I met my husband in Germany. He was a second lieutenant when we got married and we moved to the United States.
Does anything remind you of home? I’m involved in the German Club and Oktoberfest. After moving around with the military, I finally found my home and it’s Cincinnati. I love it.
What still seems foreign? The driving. Because it seems like it’s too relaxed. People don’t pay attention to the driving and are too much on their cell phones.
What’s your American Dream? I guess my dream was fulfilled in finally reaching my destination and my citizenship.
