“Growing up I had a lot of issues. One of my biggest issues was not having enough money to go to school. This affected me a lot because I couldn’t achieve my goals. My goals had always been to be able to graduate and get a good career, but I couldn’t because I had to start working at a very young age. I knew I wouldn’t be able to achieve my goals so I decided to come to this country. All though I didn’t get what I wanted I have taught my self that giving up is never the answer. “
