I was born in Argentina and immigrated with my family to the U.S in 2002. My ultimate goal is to accomplish what my parents dreamt for my brother and me: opportunity and happiness. I am the first person in my family to attend college, something that isn’t an incredible deal for many people, but for my family and me, it’s a tremendous achievement. Ever since I was old enough to acknowledge the struggle my parents have endured in order to raise me in a country established with opportunity, I have vowed to dedicate myself entirely to hard work and academics. To me, that is the only way I can thank my parents for their love and hard work of leaving their country at a late age and starting a new life in a different country, not knowing the language or the culture. Attending Westchester Community College is the best option for me at this time as I do not want to leave college with debt. I aim to continue to pursue classes that I envision myself obtaining degrees and a career in, such as forensics and criminology. To me that is my natural calling. I love to serve people in my community, and I consider myself a person that believes in justice and equality for all.
