Embracing a mixed ethnicity of Italian Scots-Irish descent, Salena comes from a family background of wise and open-minded people.
At the time when racism still held its ground over the people of American nationality, her mother welcomed a black family into the neighborhood with no discrimination and also welcomed them to their family table.
Being firm and compassionate, her mother even revealed a family secret to her when she was a teenager. Salena’s great-grandfather Clifford G. Peiffer killed himself by jumping off the Sandusky Street Bridge into the Allegheny River.
That left Clifford’s family in despair, and his son (Salena’s grandfather) had to quit school to support the family. Her mother told her that the choice her great-grandfather Clifford made was one nobody should ever face.
However, Salena learned a great deal from the story behind her great-grandfather’s suicide. So, she worked hard to fulfill her dreams, duties, and responsibilities.
