    Never have I realized the reality of the world until my birth nation, the United States, helped me come upon all the colors outside the pink bubble I was living in. I was always under the fear of getting out of my comfort zone. I grew up in Mexico with my two parents, and two older brothers. Although, I was born in the United States I have always considered myself Mexican. I was living in the city of Tijuana, which is considered one of the most dangerous cities of the world due to its reputation of drug dealers. The borderline between the countries also represented the border between my dream and my pink bubble. I attended an all girl catholic school since I was three years old. Throughout the years, I was always surrounded by the same people…

    In my opinion the American Dream is being able to have the career of your choice. I always say if you do something you, love you never have to work a day in your life. I do believe people have to start from the bottom and work their way to the top. I want to be a head coach for women's college basketball, but I have no experience. Now I have to be a team manager and work for free. This is my American dream because I am doing something I love. I got inspired by Tulane, I wrote letters, and I got…

    My American Dream “So we beat on boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past” (Fitzgerald 180). This quote means that the past cannot be relived so having to move on and not dwell on the past is a necessity. Fitzgerald uses this quote to explain what is happening after Gatsby’s death. Gatsby’s American Dream is much unlike mine. He dreamed of having Daisy as his girl and to be able to show her off and be proud of her; everything he did was to either impress Daisy or…

    My parent’s American Dream, similar to many other immigrants of the 1990s, was to seek a better life and to get access to more job opportunities. When I interview my dad about his difficult decision of leaving everything behind and move to a foreign country, he told me that during that time, China had a horrible economy and he just simply did not see a future in that kind of environment. When he heard about San Francisco, a land of gold and opportunities, he decided to take a risk and challenge…

    rushed across my face as the ice skating routine came to a close. For a moment, silence, followed by loud cheers, praise and applause galore. The lights turned on, beaming periodically directly into my eyes. Squinting, looking for familiar faces, I came across my grandparents. The look of joy on their faces was incredibly comforting, yet I came to the harsh realization that my parents were not with them. Growing up, my parents worked multiple jobs to support our family. We lived in a house…

    The sun shining down on my skin, the sand in between my toes and the ocean water rushing past me reminds me of the blissful summers I spent with my whole family. Seeing everyone smile and laugh together fills my body with warmth and comfort. One story my mother once told me forever altered my perspective on the simplicity of life. My mother escaped Vietnam when she was only seventeen years old due to communist rule and oppressive conditions. After enduring one year of suffering through two…

    London is my home away from home. If America was my greatest adventure and my greatest fear, being a Pirate was my greatest journey. A thirty-hour exhausting flight physically transported me from Vietnam to a foreign land - Corpus Christi, as well as figuratively transformed a childish girl to a young adult at the age of fifteen. From the moment that I stepped out of the airplane, a new chapter of my life began without me being aware. After a chain of uplifting and exciting feelings, the reality…
