It's Julie Andrews' World, Sylvia Just Lives In It

Sylvia becomes the first person in her Mexican-American family to go away to college, at a predominantly white school in upstate New York. As all her cousins at home get married, start families, and seem happier than she is, she wonders why, exactly, is her route the better one? (11 minutes) Sylvia first talked about her experiences with her mother and family in high school in our "Escape the Box" show in 1998.
