Once there was a farm boy who was charged with watching the sheep and protecting them from wolves. He was supposed to cry ‘wolf’ if he encountered any and the villagers would come to his aid.

Even before the beginning of his presidency, Donald J. Trump worried traditional American allies across the world.

Recently some new college students asked me “What does it mean to embark on a degree in history?” Having been through the experience myself I wanted to impart, if at all possible, the endeavor as holistically as possible to attempt to express just what you would be in for. Now, understand my experience is not the experience of everyone, every person is different. What may be easy for one person could be incredibly difficult for another.

Being an immigrant is a constant challenge, but being an immigrant to the United States is the greatest challenge of them all. First, We must learn and adopt a new language, which without the proper education is incredibly hard.
