HR 2669: Financial Boost for Low Income AAPIs

http://www.aapress.com/nationalnews.php?subaction=showfull&id=1184942039&archive=&start_from=&ucat=1&

Sia Moua (Programming Chair for MAASU ECC) gave me the heads up about this article. This is truly a momentous occassion in regards to legislation, since this greatly benefits Asian American and Pacific Islander students who fall within the lower income bracket. It is truly comforting to know that there are actually people out there who have their priorities straight and are truly seeking to assist those in need of attaining the same opportunities that every individual is entitled to. The opportunity to pursue one's educational ambitions without financial hindrance is truly something important.

Most of us may not realize how fortunate we are to be able to attend institutions of higher education and be given the opportunity to pursue various endeavors to which we feel will enable us to make the most of our lives. The unfortunate reality, however, is that there are so many individuals who are unable to pursue such opportunities only because everything in America has a price, and if you cannot afford it, then you are forced to live without it. This legislation opens a door that was once closed out to so many and its focus upon Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is truly showing that the spotlight hasn't been cast away from this group of individuals.

These are the types of issues that we should be the most concerned with, because these issues are the ones that can truly change lives and enable those who are less fortunate to attain a fighting chance in this world. Helping one another should be something that we aim to pursue in our lives, because with the opportunities and advancements we make, we should try to help pave that road so that those who come after us are able to pursue their dreams without the kind of obstacles that could be overcome with the proper attention.
