Meryem speaks about her current dilemma. She's experienced a lot of prejudice since moving to Bloomington, more than she did when she was an undergraduate student in New Hampshire in the early 2000s. She fears for her safety and the safety and happiness of her young son. She has enjoyed living in America and loves the friends she has made. The majority of people around her are nice and welcoming, but she doesn't want her son to grow up to believe he is separate or "other" and fears he is starting to learn just that.
