    Personal Statement When I was a child of four or five, I could often be seen following my mother around asking her to speak "spanglish" to me.

This simple act of interest in my mother's heritage as well as my own, has led to many accomplishments and goals that might not have occurred if I...
  • New Community In The Ecological Succession
    394 words
