A Disrupted Childhood

DescriptionImagine being 11 years old, fleeing from your country to escape a civil war. Alfonso Campos didn’t have to imagine this, he experienced it. Olivia Campos, his 14 year old daughter, has interviewed him about the early years of his life in Nicaragua and the journey to California. While recording this interview in Hollywood, Alfonso talks when and why the war started, the impact it had on his family, the reason for leaving Nicaragua, and life after immigration. My favorite part of the interview is when he tells us about a day at school when the realities of the war hit him.
