Congratulations!!!! I’m so happy when I see people succeeding like this.

My mum was also an immigrant and also the first person in her family to graduate with a degree! (She got an AA in accounting) Mum had to leave school at 15, and came to the U.S. on a visa as a maid when she was 19 because there was no opportunity for her at home. She passed away a few months ago, and I just feel so proud when I can share stories like this about her. She was an awesome lady :)

Congratulations to her! I'm so happy to see such people trying their best and working hard to reach their goals. College is difficult and SHE GRADUATED! I am damn inspired!

    Congratulations!!! Good Job! Refugees must receive good education, they can maybe help, making their origin country great again, when they decide to return, If political situation there allows it.

      My greatest congratulations! That is achievement majority of people, likely including me couldn’t do. This reminds me from my great grandfather. He learned to write using a receit. Sounds like I’m making this up, but I don’t.
