At Home While Away

  1. A series of stories of Micronesians who have left the islands to take up life in the US. Many live in the Hawaii, but others live in mainland US. A few have spent long years in the US military. Some have gone on to run their own businesses. One or two see their main role as caretakers–of their own families and of their fellow island migrants. All have words of advice to offer others who find themselves living abroad. Yet, in the end, the most important thing these individuals have to share with their island people is their own inspiring story.

    Most of these individuals live comfortably in their new home, although not many of them would call themselves well-to-do. If they can be described as success stories, it is not so much because of the money they made or the job responsibilities their bear as their determination to forge strong ties with their new community while cultivating their old bonds with the people back home.
