She then talks about her hopes for her children’s future. Skip Blumberg and Anda Korsts conduct the interview.

Her ideal life would be not working, and just staying home and volunteering somewhere. She didn’t have to work while her children were very young. Her mother worked also. She talks about her expectations for her daughters. She wants her daughters to get a good education so they don’t have to work in a factory.
