In 1991, I immigrated to the United States with two pieces of luggage and two children. My daughter Carla was three years old, and my son Rudik was one.
Seven years later, I separated from my husband and became a single mother. Meeting other single mothers like myself helped me face my many challenges and to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Carla is now is a Social Worker and a professor at a community college and Rudik a Film Director.
Imagine if all immigrant children or children born to immigrant women could also have these opportunities and achieve a bright future to make a difference in their lives and in their communities.
