“I can not wait to study abroad” multiple friends tell me
All I do is shake my head and reply “mhm I can not wait either”
I lied to them
I can not go out of the country, I can not explore the world
I am stuck in one place
This place is known as the United States of America that one day they said will bring the American Dream for my family
I wake up each day and I live in a world of fear, mistrust, and silence..." [excerpt]
