Questions I asked Lana:
● What made you want to come to America?
● As a Korean, Russian immigrant, you came to America with one dollar in your pocket,
but a big dream within your heart . How do you think that dream in your heart, though
you had no money and couldn't speak the language, was the difference maker?
● You had a special pair of earrings and a bracelet that your grandmother gave to you.
Can you tell us the significance of that?
● There was a moment where you had to make a choice. That is when they stole your earrings, they stole your bracelet. Your grandmother had given it to you saying, “Sell this if you need to”. Of course you didn’t want to sell it. Here you are getting ripped off by a bunch of hoodlums. Your moment was whether you fold up and go back to Russia, or push forward. So tell us about that moment and how that brought you clarity.
