Monica,
Congratulations on your recent marriage. You are to be commended for your success in life and the new example you are setting for your children. You not only beat the odds (your grammar is impeccable BTW!), but you beat one of the hardest things that Hispanic minorities face in today's age...culture. It is so sad to see that the family belittles the one who wants to do better: to go to school, to become financially successful, and to beat the poverty odds. They receive pressure from family and friends to "remember where you come from", or "do you think you're better now?" I don't know if you experienced this, but I know those who have, and consequently they don't go as far as they possibly can. And it is so sad.

Affirmative action has made it possible for every single American to be their absolute best - but it is still up to the individual to make it happen. As you know, nothing is handed to you. You must bust your backside every single day to get where you want. You have to say no to drugs and crime, you have to be a super mom while you are working and going to school at the same time, you have to be responsible to not end up pregnant again (which will only set you back), and you have to do what is right by your family robbing from Peter to pay Paul, stretching every dollar, sleepless nights, sick days with no sitter, etc. The challenges are endless and the odds are almost insurmountable. But you are one of those ships that made it through the storm...and again, I congratulate you. Well done. You deserve to be very, very proud of yourself.
