There are almost 60 million Hispanic and Latinos living in America, and most of them are believing deeply in the ‘American Dream’. All of our grandparents and parents have come to this great country to pursue their own American Dream, and we all have followed right in their footsteps.
We left our families and our countries to find better lives for not only ourselves but also for exactly the families we left behind. We all arrived with great dreams and the willingness to work hard to realize our goals.
Most of us have started their own new families in this country, and we also adopted lots of things from this land’s culture. Most of us have adapted to this nation’s typical way of life, but we also cherish and keep our own culture.
Our mindset has become more American, but our hearts remain Latino. There have actually been quite a few research studies that indicate that Latinos and Hispanics are far more optimistic when it comes to believing that achieving our dreams is possible here, than non-Latinos. Our dreams may be different, though, than the dreams of non-Latinos.
