I come from a working class family in New Orleans and I have a passion for languages. I pay for my own college and living expenses but study abroad seems very expensive and it's something that I want to pursue in order to fulfill my passion. I attend LSU and I'm dual majoring in French and international trade and finance. I'm half Mexican so I also speak Spanish thanks to my beautiful mother. We experienced hardship from Katrina with our home being destroyed and my parents worked so hard (2 to 3 jobs) to keep us on track. I want to eventually pay them back for all that they've done and that's why I'm so driven to become successful. Please help me out if you can relate. Anything is appreciated. God bless.
