My American Dream

My american dream is based off of my parents' american dream. Their dream is for their hard work of coming to this country would pay off so that their kids could have a better life than they did. My American Dream is to get my doctorate in microbiology so I can make enough money to own a big piece of land where I can make a family of my own and in that way realize my parents' american dream.
Being able to own my own piece of land and raising a family of my own would give me that sense of independence because I would know that what I have earned is mine. Earning my doctorate would be a huge accomplishment because of all the effort and hard work it would take. Both parts together would be a way of realizing my parents' american dream and that would bring joy to me because I would have help realize their dream.
