Rowena Triunfante

Rowena Caraan Triunfante 

Rowena Caraan Triunfante is the mother of my best friend Nico Triunfante. She came to America when she was five years old, but settled here when she was six years old. She has been living in the San Francisco-Daly City area for about 40 years and is now an assistant of a merging company, Bain & Company. She lives with her own family: her husband Antonio, son Nico (20), daughter Sabrina (17), and their dog Toby. 
In her interview, she talks about her story of how she moved to America, the differences between living in America and living in the Philippines, and how she first viewed the United States through American media.
