About This Project

My name is Ernesto Escobar and I am currently living in the United States, and have been for the last sixteen years, going on seventeen. I was originally born in El Salvador and spent the first five years of my childhood there. The few memories I have of my native country I hold very close to my heart because they always make me happy no matter what. The purpose of this capstone project is to take a closer look at where I came from and to focus on experiences outside of my own. There is a wealth of history inside the tiny country of El Salvador, and my task is to explore it, specifically through the lens of the Salvadoran Civil War.
