    According to the latest data the number of
    immigrants in NC from the subcontinent has
    tripled over the last 8-10 years to roughly
    28,000. If the System Office is ever involved in
    a cultural or professional exchange with India,
    keep me in mind, okay?

  • In the past four years, more than half the new
    students in North Carolinas public schools were
    Hispanic/Latino.
  • Most Hispanic/Latino children in North Carolina
    live in households earning less than 30,000 per
    year, where parents dont own their homes and
    dont have a college education.

    colleges should immediately begin admitting
    undocumented individuals.
  • In curriculum, out-of-state tuition required
    except when waived by law (Learn and Earn, for
    example)

    succeed in an interconnected world in which the
    rules have changed for everyone.

Welcoming the World
  • God willing, I'll be able to give back
    something to a community that has already given
    me so much. I want to leave you with one last
    comment, be grateful for all you have in this
    country, the freedom, the sunshine, the people
    and most of all the opportunities. You gave me
    the chance to start over, to reinvent myself and
    to accomplish a lifelong dream.
