Dr. Hernandez was the citizen of Columbia and moved from the violent years of drug associations. He moved in 1978. He afterwards gained the citizenship with the help of the Preston University and his parents. Similarly Darling had also a similar case. She left Zimbabwe when the conditions of the country were miserable and not fruitful for living a productive life. She was about to leave the United States but later on she was advised to stay and request for citizenship as her own country is not good for living conditions. The main aim of the paper is to compare and contrast both individual’s stories and to discuss the similarities as well as differences which could help in both stories to be connected.
Both Darling and Dr. Hernandez were outsiders and they gain the nationality after a long period of time. In Columbia there was no future of the children that’s why Dr. Hernandez and his parents moved to United States of America. Similarity, Darling and family was also facing hunger, deaths, lack of food, and uncertainty of living a proper life that’s why they moved to USA.
Dr. Hernandez perused his career in the field of medicine and he successfully became a heart surgeon. In contrast Darling was able to happily became just the American citizen with perusing her career in education. Dr. Hernandez got a beautiful and successful life with which he was able to become a torch for the people who don’t believe in education and goodwill gestures. The same could be counted for Darling as she is one of the best to help out herself and her family for surviving in United States.
In a nutshell, it can be explained that both stories are completely elated to each other and immigration have a significant influence on their lives. Both have lives full of deficiencies but every problem is resolved by the help of the immigration and getting the citizenship of United States of America.
