Jocari Peralta is passionate about life and all of its beauty. She is involved in her local church where she sings, and shares her spiritual testimonies with others. She gives back to her impoverished, drug infested community by volunteering at a soup kitchen where she serves food for different families and other people who express need. She is also very involved in Youtube, where she chooses to share her story with the hopes of impacting others' lives positively and inspiring growth. Her goals for the year are to explore another culture and learn a new language, to experience life and make a difference, to grow as a human being and acquire more stories to tell. I am inspired by people, and the way that they move, think and feel about life.

The Daughter of the American Dream

“The Descendants” by Iris Hu Have we achieved the American Dream? Pause. “Yo pienso que sí,” she says. That means I think so. I think so… I think. I think we have. It’s hard to tell, depends what you’re comparing your life to. When I was younger all I ever dreamed about was making my…
