Bottom line

Bottom Line

“My American Dream seems simple: to live on my own and be self-sufficient, to live with dignity and independence. I struggle with my finances right now, but I am an optimist – I believe that I can make progress with my job, move forward and become part of the mainstream economy and achieve my goals.”
