Burst the boundaries
Organized by: Amanda Velasquez
I came to the U.S. at the age of nine after attempting to cross the border for the third time, managed to learn English and make friends, took on six Advanced Placement courses (Passing the AP Chemistry Exam and waiting on the results on four other tests), graduated high school with the Golden State Seal Merit Stamp on my diploma, and just recently got hired at a McDonald's restaurant...but I'm not done. I was accepted to two universities and decided to attend Cal State L.A. even if I have to take out loans and my family disagrees with me. Please help me prove to them, to the odds, and to myself, that I can keep going and burst the boundaries.
