People have to understand one thing: at the age of 18, I arrived at a dream club like Manchester United. It was a dream come true.

If I had the opportunity to speak to a young immigrant girl that just arrived to the U.S. the advice I would have for her would be: ask, speak, search; because there are opportunities out there. And, know that you aren't the only immigrant or the last to come to this country. Many that have come before you have succeeded. It is possible.
Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.

Anna Louise Strong

Dallas is an extraordinary place in it's own right. The first thing about Dallas that you can't get away from, particularly when I arrived, you've got no idea of the heat in this place.
