First Lady of the Mall: My Immigrant Story

By Bruna Massadas

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


In telling her story of immigration from Brazil to the United States at the age of 15, Bruna Massadas recreates an adolescent world overwhelmed by Americanized fantasies: the kind ruled by blond-haired, blue-eyed beauties; the kind filled with laugh tracks, dramatic closeups, and the inevitable happy ending. But she also depicts the actual America she soon encountered: high school halls crowded with immigrants and teenage hormones; nights plagued by typical worries over fashion and boyfriends, but complicated with anxieties over language and cultural assimilation.

Customer Reviews

Both moving and hilarious

It’s tough to get someone to laugh in a 5 minute podcast and harder to get someone to think, but Bruna and her team achieved it, every single time. You’ll laugh and cry, and almost certainly get new perspective on important issues facing America today. Race, immigration, bullying and more. Needless to say I learned a lot, but it still felt sweet and nostalgic throughout. It’s as engaging and entertaining as Jean Shephard while not flinching from the harsh realities of America. Five Stars. Listen to it.
