Student Story: David Chang, UC Riverside
"I am by no means a picture perfect college student. I'm thirty and it took me thirteen years to finally say that I’m graduating next quarter. I used to think it was shameful (and a part of me still does) but I found solace in knowing that I gave my best given the circumstances.
You know how we all sang the Star Spangled Banner and pledged allegiance to the flag as children? It sounds corny but I feel like a part of me, as an American citizen, is finally fulfilled by living here in D.C."
