I am going to tell you My American Dream® Story (& how I can help you get yours!)
The American Dream®.
- Have you heard of it?
- Do you believe it’s true?
- What does it mean to you?
The American Dream® is the belief that anyone (regardless of race, class, location, or anything else) can reach their own version of success if you work hard.
Maybe it’s the freedom that gets you believing. Freedom of speech so you can speak your mind and voice your values and opinions. The freedom to do what you want. In many countries, you are told what to do, where to do it, with whom and when to live your life. Not in America. You have the freedom to live a truly free and independent life if you work hard and make the appropriate decisions.
Maybe it’s something else?
The truth is I cannot answer this question for you. Only you can answer what the American Dream® means to you.
However, I can tell you my story and what the American Dream® means to me. Allow me to explain!
I was born in Saudi Arabia. I had a tough childhood. I grew up in the middle of a war zone. Rockets, missiles, and other weapons flying over my elementary school was just another day in the classroom for me.
It was traumatizing. I learned about evil and hatred at a young age. My parents decided in 1986 the best thing for us to do was move from Saudi Arabia to Lebanon. My father wanted me to learn English as he knew this would help my future.
Several years later I graduated from high school. This was a big moment for me but shortly after high school graduation something even better happened…I received my visa.
I remember my mother crying tears of joy and hugging me in the middle of a basketball court. She was sad to see me leave but knew this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.
The next thing I know I was living in the United States. Just an 18-year-old living by himself in a completely foreign country with no family and no friends. I was scared and lonely, to say the least.
I was soon introduced to Stetson University and got accepted within days of applying. This was the moment where I felt my American Dream® was becoming an American reality! Everything was going great for me. But my journey did not come without its struggle’s:
- In 2001 I was the only Arabic-international student at Stetson University
- At one point I was living on just $200 a month
- I had to work for free at one point
After overcoming these struggles, I soon graduated from law school at Stetson. It was one of the best moments of my life. I was one of the last people to get called on stage. All my American friends joined me on stage to congratulate and hug me. They knew I did not have an easy road and were proud of me!
That’s what the American Dream® is all about. Fighting through obstacles but enjoying all the benefits too. You’ll be given freedom, liberty, independence, and peace of mind. You’ll also be given hope, confidence, and the greatest opportunity to create an amazing life not just for yourself, but for your family.
The truth is… if you work hard, you’ll make it. You’ll be given a fair shot at success just like the rest of us.
I know what the American Dream® means to me… so I ask you again: What does the American Dream® mean to you?
You know my story… now I want to help create yours. There’s no better feeling than seeing that twinkle in someone’s eye after helping them become an American citizen. One of the most important lessons I learned at Stetson was about philanthropy. Now it is my time to reach out and help you achieve your goals.
I want to help you turn that American Dream® into an American REALITY!
