My name is Cinthia Ledesma and I come from immigrant parents, who got here when they were young. They came to achieve the American Dream. I am the first from the family to attend college. This puts a little pressure on me because I have to set an example to my family.
When I was small, I had difficulties with school because I was the oldest and my parents weren't able to help me with my homework, since they did not speak english. My goal is to graduate in four years and get a degree in social work. Directly after I graduate, I want to get my masters degree. My dream is to work in a hospital as a social worker. I also want to minor in Spanish so I could be able to translate in the hospital and help those that are not fluent in English.
