Of course, the keys to success in this country are going to be different for everyone. I will say the most significant measure of my family’s success is collaborative determination. As an immigrant family, we didn’t have much to begin with, but we always had food on the table and a warm, clean home. To make sure there was always an adult at home to look after the kids, my parents worked different shifts. My dad worked days as a receiving clerk, and my mom worked nights as a supervisor for a cleaning company. We didn’t shop at fancy places or eat out. Many of our clothes were either hand-me-downs or from the local thrift store. I started babysitting at 12 to save enough money to buy a car at 16, and that work ethic was inspired and encouraged by my parents. My family is proof that immigrants help make this country strong.
