Paulina's Story


I was brought to the U.S. when I was eight months old. the reason was for the seeking of opportunity. My parents wanted me to have the chance to go to college and fight poverty, ignorance, and stereotypes with education. Now, I am not eligible for financial aid, so college is going to be a hassle, financially. Changes that my parents had to face were "Americanization" and loss of culture. They needed to learn English and faced discrimination.
