The other day I got a package in the mail—the upcoming May/June 2013 issue of COBBLESTONE magazine. It’s not on the newsstands yet, so I’ll give you a sneak preview.
Here’s the cover:
The topic is timely, given the recent debate over immigration reform and providing a path to citizenship to people already in this country.
I’m especially impressed by young immigrants. Gedion from Ethiopia, Myint from Burma, and Quynh Thi from Vietnam are three young adults I interviewed for this issue of COBBLESTONE. I met them in St. Paul, Minnesota, at LEAP High School, a school just for immigrants.
You’ll find my interview with Gedion, Myint, and Quynh Thi on pages 13 through 16 of the magazine. There’s also a quick sidebar on page 17 about schools like LEAP and the challenges their students face.
I found the stories of these young immigrants truly inspiring and I hope you will too.
