      What a fantastic tail of succeeding against the odds you are an inspiration to us all. Keep up the good work I can imagine many migrants do not believe it is possible to get a good education and hopefully the Migrant Program will help to educate a new generation.

      Dear Luz: I graduated with a BBA from UT Austin in 1985. I congratulate you for your altruism. Have you helped migrants from El Salvador? If so, I thank you for aiding my fellow nationals who usually suffer greatly since leaving our homeland. ¡Que Dios te bendiga siempre y adelante con tu trabajo!
