I am from an immigrant family that wanted a future for their sons and daughters and most of all for them selves. I do not live with either one of my parents, I am twenty-four years old and attending college. I moved away far from both parents so I could have a similar experince they did, with out having no safety nets and having the similar emotions that they were fighting by facing new obstacles. They are my examples of hard work and taking the word no for a answer. This decision I made was worth it, I am growing into someone I love and do things I would not have been doing if I were so close to home. Keep pushing forward no matter how hard it gets is my formula.
