Then there are other immigrants without any money or voice at all. But I did like the family pictures and the strained relationship with his father painted a semi-interesting tale. I think that this book would be enjoyed by anyone interested in hearing a different American dream story.

Purpose: An Immigrants Story

It would become the first English colony to succeed in America, but its beginning was exceptionally difficult. Wyclef is a great artist but an awful person! France established colonies along the Saint Lawrence River, in what is now Canada; and also in the southern part of North America, in the region that is now Louisiana. Great story of Wyclef's life from Haiti, to stardom and back. I was surprised to enjoy this book as much as I did.

Financial Independence : An immigrant’s story

Purpose: An Immigrants Story

The same principle applies with saving money. This was the way in which one government took over from another. I also got the feeling that even though Wyclef was mostly honest in this book, in some areas, he held back and did not give the real reasons for why he did certain things. People in South, where the plantations depended on slavery, wanted to continue the practice. He also talks about his work with Haiti and his group Yele which was one of the first aid groups to help after the earthquake hit. All 33 structures on Ellis Island are officially closed in November 1954.

But the last half of the book was poorly written did his co-author quit before the book was complete? I was really put off by his extended explanation of his affair with Lauryn Hill - take some responsibility for being a cheater, as well as the times you've failed in life. By comparison, as recently as the 1950s, two-thirds of all immigrants to the United States came from Europe or Canada. Wyclef transports you to an era forgotten, the struggle many immigrants went through to have a better opportunity for their family. Europeans started looking to America again as a place of refuge. However, he doesn't shy away from stating when he was wrong and made mistakes, which is why this book got three stars, instead of one!

In the end, Jean endorsed fellow musician, Michel Martelly who emerged the winner of that election and remains the current leader. These immigrants work hard and keep the country running, often doing dirty, difficult and dangerous jobs without many noticing. Catch You On The Inside! This economic success gave England a powerful interest in protecting its foothold in the New World. It makes me wonder how Lauryn Hill's career would have differed if she never entered a romantic relationship with him.
