I want to make a name for myself. Neither one of my parents graduated. Some of my brothers did and some didn't. I also come to school every day because I love sports. Sports is my passion. A sport depends on your grades, and if you don't have good grades there is no reason to go out for a sport. Sports are also affected by your actions and decisions, you have to be a good kid and be wiling to show up and practice hard every day. I come to school to become better. - Christian, 10th grader

I come to school for many reasons. The main reasons are to see my friends and for my parents. I rarely see my friends, so school is the only time I get to see them. Also, I know my parents worked hard to come to America to make sure I got an education. I don't want to make them feel like I've wasted their efforts. - Meron, 12th grader

I go to school because I want to be something in life. I go to school because I can’t get anywhere without knowledge. Also, once you receive your education you can’t get that taken away. I go to school because I don’t have a choice and my parents make me. I want to have enough knowledge so I can have a job and money. Lastly, my school is my social life. - Jonnese, 9th grader

School has not always been a priority to my family. Having had both parents drop out, I could have easily given up on school. Now that I have a daughter of my own, I am determined to make a better life for her. I look forward to joining the Army and becoming a veterinarian to provide a background support for my daughter. - Ashia, 11th grader

I go to school because I want to go to college. My parents came in 1997, so I was the first-born and first generation in America. My parents did not go to college and had the bare minimum education. Who would I be if I didn't have the chance to go to an American school and go to college here? I know my parents would've killed for a chance like this. I want to make my parents proud that I got to do what they couldn't. - Nadia, 9th grader (photo credit: apermanentwreck via Flickr)
