"My family and I came here in 2008 when I was 10. I didn’t speak any English, so I was in ELL (English Language Learner classes) for four years. In 8th grade I started taking regular classes along with the other students. By the time I was in high school, I started taking college classes. I’ll be going to college with actual credits. I can finish college early, but I’m not planning to since I got outside scholarships that fully funded me to go to college. I’m waiting to hear back from another one."
