From Bucharest to Berkeley
Thursday, August 7, 2003; 9:36 AM
"From Bucharest to Berkeley" is a look into the life of Berkeley teenager Ana Maria Dragin, who has said she feels caught between two cultures, and two families. At the age of two, Ana was abandoned on the streets of Bucharest, Romania. She would likely have ended up languishing in a squalid Romanian orphanage, had she not been taken in by a kindly family stretching their means to care for her, and then later adopted by Berkeley psychologist Nadine Payn.
