    We all have a story that is untold. One that not many people are not aware of. The story that made you who you are today or who you will become in the future. As I am listening to Maria Covarrubias I can see the pain in her eyes as she recounts her story. The pain that I was not aware of until now. My mother came to the United States of America at a very young age. She came here to fulfill her dreams of coming to California “El Norte” for a better future. However, not all things turned out like…

There are so many categories and subcategories of people that Americans can’t possibly be defined within one national culture, as in most countries do.
