I dont know if its the same thing but there was a Lebanese student in my French class. she was a teacher in Lebanon. she had to take all the classes over again and was in my 101 class even though she was fluent in the language!
“After this I go to work at a pizza shop. My wife and I were college professors in Bangladesh. I taught accounting. But one dollar in America becomes eighty dollars when we send it back home.”
People forget, when immigrants come to this country they start from scratch. They could have been lawyers in their home country, but in the US..it means nothing. You think a HS diploma from Bangladesh means anything in this country? My mom was a top student in the country, went to all the best school and got the best of everything…but when she got here it meant squat and she was cleaning other people’s homes and scrubbing their toilets. This is why I get pissed of when people talk smack about immigrants. They at least are doing something…..heading for a goal..making sacrifices…what are you doing with your life?
^ My parents were college-educated teachers in their home country and came to the U.S. with nothing but empty pockets, a dash of hope, and a belief in God. They also scrubbed toilets in people’s homes to make enough to provide for their children, and that’s probably not something a lot of educated professionals would be able to do. I know I wouldn’t be able to do it. Pride would get in the way.
THIS IS TOO IMPORTANT.
Mosquita y Mari- amazing film!
beautiful film. and the bottom left gif has got me feeling some type of way
Not one cent will pass from my pocket in support of The Lone Ranger.
Seriously, fuck everything about that movie, and fuck everything about Johnny Depp with his idiotic tonto-speak made real.
Same, seen a Subway commercial that promoted the film, adding them to the list of places where I won’t be spending my money.
GO TO THE WEBSITE AND WATCH THE VIDEO.
I wish I had that much money :(
also a role model.
