AIM Success Story
"When I came to the US, I did not come to study; I came looking for a job to send money to my parents and younger siblings in Jalisco. Now that I have graduated with a master's degree and have been a teacher for eight years, my conclusion is that persistence and dedication helped me learn English and save enough money to pay for college completely out of my pocket and from time to time send money to my family in my country."
