Being Alone, Family, and Future: Daughter of Honduran immigrants is now pursuing a career in medicine at Harvard University! Repost @karlaaaxoxo: "My grind comes from seeing my mother, a TPS recipient from Honduras, struggle and sacrifice everything so that I could have a better life. Witnessing her pain, tears, sacrifice, effort, hardwork every single day while she still sustained her elegance, dignity, and character as a woman filled me with admiration of her. Una luchadora! I never saw her laying in bed feeling sorry for herself, never complained, always smiled and rose her head high! Despite all the odds stacked against her, her strength and ability to push HARDER than how she started fuels me. NEVER in my life will I ever allow anyone to classify me & my future through stereotypes & statistics! I wasn't born with a shining crown nor was anything ever given to me in a silver platter, no one in my family even attended a university let alone pursue a carrier in medicine and none still don't even speak English but through my circumstances in life coming from nothing. I'd be damned to settle for anything less than great! Mi mami broke chains, left Honduras to give me a better future. I raise my voice loud and proud to those who's family migrated so we can graduate, the minority, the underdogs, to those who fight against all odds daily, the ones who are breaking chains, those who were seen to never even have a future & instantly labeled to become another statistic GUESS WHAT! We have become men and women with a vision, educated, far from the norm, we have become people determined to influence & change the world."
