We Look Out for Strangers

By Shania Twain

I left Canada really with nothing, and came to the U.S. looking for a future. I had no parents after they died in a car accident. Luckily, I was embraced by mentors who would invite me to their house on weekends to be with their family. We’d play guitar and sing. They cooked Southern food. I was welcomed on a personal level, which gave me a good impression of America. —A.N.
