- Define American

Featured Blog post

Highlights from Julissa Arce’s February TEDx Talk at Texas Tech University.

Julissa shared her story of living as an undocumented immigrant, and how she was able to overcome challenges to obtain a college degree, and work at Goldman Sachs. In her talk, she draws comparisons of immigrant stereotypes from Europeans in the 1920′s, and immigrants from Latin America and Asia today.

She asks, “If we were built by immigrants, …if that is who we are as a nation, then what if someone like me, who wasn’t born here, who gave up so much because she so desperately wanted to be American, what if someone who works really hard, and pursues that dream… what if someone like that, does in fact, define American?
