StoryCorps Atlanta: Growing Up 'Old-Style' In Puerto Rico

Jul 26, 2016

Emilia Roman-Torres was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico to a very free-spirited mom. 

She was recently invited to the StoryCorps Atlanta booth by her youngest son, 15-year-old Juan Jose Morales Roman, to talk about how it felt every time her mom flew the coop, leaving her to be raised by her ‘old-school’ grandparents.

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta's StoryCorps Booth.
