Pedro Fernandes

Newark, NJ

I define America as the Country my father was invited to, as a top professional, the country that gave me the tools for a college education, the country where I my weekly salary as a dishwasher is higher than my monthly salary as a journalist in Portugal. A country that needs people like me that speaks 3 languages fluently plus two languages…where my language skills have been essential upgrading my career…a country that’s my country and as an American(because of my contribute to society) , I adopted as mine and that I am constantly striving to be accepted and recognized for my dedication and hard work as a writer.
