The introduction of the essay basically talks about that the author stated to explore and research on immigrants’ laws because of her boyfriend’s sister can not able to pay for her college due to the lack of citizen. I think it is important for people to get higher education. As the author said, “it does serve to prove that those who do demonstrate determination, motivation, and initiative should not be denied access to higher education as a result of being labeled with the status of undocumented”(p.182). No matter immigrants has their documents of citizenships, it cannot be the reason that the country do not let them go to the school.

My Chinese full name is Jinxin Kong. In Chinese, “Jin” means gold and “Xin” means when the sun rise up. I think my parents gave me this name because they want me have a bright and shiny future in my life. I don’t think I ever embarrassed by my name, but people usually write wrong characters about my name. I had changed my name once before I went to school. The form of the name changed but the pronunciation is still the same. The reason is that my parents thought it is too complex for me to write my name. And I think the changed name is better.

I think the word “interesting” can be taken either way, both positive and negative. When you say something is very interesting, you can mean it positive which said the things are attractive to people. But sometimes when people say “you look interesting”, it contains the negative connotations. What they are saying is that you are look different with others, it is more ironic. And now, when people said “interesting”, it is more different.
