In today’s era of rampant globalization and migration more and more people are deciding to relocate to different countries and cultures. However, the decision to migrate to a new country is not a simple task but involves processes like alienation, assimilation, and finally acculturation. “The Theobroma Procedure”, which was published by the Institute of Caribbean Studies in Washington, D.C., addresses the question of how migrants define their cultural identity by telling the story of the life of a cocoa bean harvested from a plantation in Trinidad, shipped to a European confectionary and transformed into chocolate praline. The story offers the reader an honest view into the migrant experience and serves as an allegory of the struggle for a cultural identity. Moreover, it poses a series of challenging questions: When do cultures begin to blend together? When does a migrant begin to identify with their new, adopted culture? At which point, if any, does a migrant lose his or her indigenous culture? And, perhaps the most challenging of all: Where are you from? Rhea Ramjohn was born in 1984 in San-Fernando, Trinidad and lived there until her family moved to Boston, Massachusetts. After graduating from Suffolk University she became an English teacher in Germany. She is currently writing her first novel.
