Giovanni Amado - Define American

Giovanni Amado

Kenly, NC

I was brought into the country at three years old. Despite the mental struggle of being undocumented, I was able to work my way through a private college without a single loan or government grant to study four years of mathematics. I earned private scholarships and worked overnight jobs from 5pm to 5am to pay for my tuition. Today, with DACA, I work in the fraud department for a bank preventing American’s money from being stolen through financial crimes. The lack of a document should not define me.
