In a Catholic High school, with immigrant kids whose only aspired goal was to graduate, attending college was more than anyone expected.

One C wouldn’t dictate who she is or who she wanted to be. In the article, “The Making of a Justice”, by Emily Bazelonjan, she states “That self-knowledge isn’t just about striving.

More specifically, I constantly related items we learned in class to real life situations that I am facing. Making those connections in…
