American or Trinidadian

Janelle Lewis is 19-years-old and her report tracks her lifelong quest: figuring out whether she's American or Trini, or both - and why.

Janelle's mom thinks she has a split personality. That's because Janelle was born in the United States, but likes to identify herself as Trini. Her mom, dad, and sister were all born in Trinidad, and Trinidadian culture is everywhere she looks in her Brooklyn neighborhood.
