As a person who was born and raised in Guatemala, Lily gets to see the world differently. Lily sees comparisons of marginalization in Guatemala and the United States; in Guatemala, the indigenous groups are marginalized and in the U.S. the people of color are. The four years she’s lived in the United States, she has gotten to the conclusion that education is a big factor that leads to success and possibly changing the world. She thinks that minority groups often are not being recognized as they should. She seeks equal education because she believes that education leads to freedom. Lily seeks the type of education that teaches people to think, not to obey and follow. As a fist generation college student, she has experienced a life changing event and wishes that more people could have the same opportunities here and also in Latin America.
