What keeps me up at night: a dreamer’s fears

Luis dreams of finishing high school, working a job while going to welding school, even going to professional school. He dreams of the house and car he will buy with the money he saves. But at night, reflecting on his future, he begins to feel insecure. “I worry that I’m too dumb for school, or that I will fail in the first few months. Sometimes I think that I can’t do anything good because I’m not from the U.S. I think in order to acquire what I want I have to be from here and have the support to get me through college.” His personal commentary is on South Kern Sol.
