" A creditamos que a educação sozinha não transforma a sociedade, sem ela tampouco a sociedade muda. Se a nossa opção é progressiva, se estamos a favor da vida e não da morte, da equidade e não da injustiça, do direito e não do arbítrio, da convivência com o diferente e não de sua negação, não temos outro caminho se não viver a nossa opção. Encarná-la, diminuindo, assim, a distância entre o que dizemos e o que fazemos" Paulo Freire

As part of Immigrant Heritage Month, I was asked to reflect on my first day in America. Instead of focusing only on that first day, I ended up looking back at the entire story -- opportunities, events, and milestones that built upon that first day when I came to the U.S. in 2002.

My Day One:
September 6, 2012 was my first day as a citizen of the United States of America.
I raised my hand, took the oath of allegiance, and the United States officially became my country that day.
At the naturalization ceremony, I received the following letter from the President of the United States:
A welcome letter from President Obama
Reading that letter was special, and it has remained with me ever since. It was 10 years in the making.
Similar to many other immigrants, my family traveled a relatively long path to citizenship. In 2002, we moved from Lahore, Pakistan to Austin, Texas in order to pursue our American Dream.
Along the way -- first as visitors, then as legal permanent residents, and ultimately as citizens -- there were celebrations and milestones; events that collectively shaped my story as an American.
