America For Beginners

Bringing American culture closer to new immigrants

[Quote of the Month] Achievements by Leon Tuam

Some folks walk to achievements while

They are under a shower of encouragements.

Others become historical after

They’ve been deeply belittled.

From the day I heard some tongues say that

I couldn’t do anything good, I took off

And I’ve never stopped rising, rising and rising.
