The American Dream

Almost 90 million immigrants have come from all over the world to live in the United States. Whether they came by boat, car, airplane or even on foot, each has a story full of challenges and sacrifices, leaving their homelands behind in search of a brighter future. These unique backgrounds and experiences have been diversifying the perspectives of the people living in America for hundreds of years. The incredible stories each immigrant has to share reflect the array of “American Dreams” existing for people living in the U.S. today.
