“What began as a journey to meet an unknown side of my American family turned into a reflection of what my life could have been if I had grown up in America instead of Sweden. I found myself experiencing a second life, one that was full of beliefs and interests and ideas completely foreign to my own. Yet the bond of family together with an immeasurable amount of love provided a vehicle for me to experience an alternative version of myself that I was unaware existed. As Jessica proudly stands in front of me wearing red earmuffs and holding a machine gun with a bayonet attached, I see a distinct reflection of myself in her, and this is something I could have never expected to find.”
