I realy don't like regurtitating information, speacially from major media outlets like The L.A. Times, but there are exceptions to everything and this story is one of them. They published a story about a young lady who like many of us, has to over come extreme obsticles just to make it to school. " De La Cruz faces fairy tale odds." The one problem I had with the story is that if they're trying to put the spotlight on her journey and struggle, why would they use the term "illegal immigrant" instead of something more politically correct like undocumented resident or student. It's a good read if you have the time and if you're in need of a pick up, her story will hopefully inspire other's to contune on and not to give up.
