My family came here as refugees from a war torn country when I was 4. There were so many obstacles my mother had to endure in order to provide and take care of me and my brother. She was the great example of working hard and saving every penny she could. She went to school back in her home country through 5th grade. With limited education and not being able to speak English you can imagine the struggles she endured. Never the less she always preached education and hardworking values because like every parent she wanted the best for us. I had the opportunity to attend college and get a degree. I am now a father of 3 great children and beautiful wife. we have purchased a house and for the first time in my life don't live in an apartmen. This is my family's home and am an example of this great country making dreams come true!! Honestly I don't care if I win this sweepstakes because I have already won and to God be the glory!!!
