The following story features Aria Lemieux, a Suffolk University student born in Cuzco, Peru.

She also spent a short time in Puerto Rico, where she attended high school. In this interview, Lemieux compares the sharp differences between Peruvian and American social life for teenagers, as well as the views Peruvians hold towards immigrants.
