Dear President:

My name is Zeinab, I'm a nineteen year old student in my senior year of High School. I'm new to the American public school system. For me and a lot of immigrants/refugees is the difficulties of catching up with the American schools education graduation requirements. That is, the English language itself might be second or third language for them and it's way hard for them to be at the same base of American students when it comes to getting scholarships and college opportunities.

Being a student at Saudi Arabia when everybody use to speak Arabic it was easy for me to get a lot more of opportunities by speaking the same language. But in America, especially as an ELL student, it's hard for a lot of immigrant students to get adopted into the systems of American schools; further, college costs as much as $65,000 per year where it is difficult for immigrants to get scholarships and or grants to get accepted into various colleges. Also, colleges thinks ELL students are not good enough to be at their colleges.

These are just some request that

I have about college costs and scholarships. I want to let you know that ELL student might have the same equality as American students and maybe more, also I want to let you know that there is a lot of ELL student that need scholarship help. I thank you for your attention. As my closing remark I would just like to say, I am okay with college as it is now, costs and everything, but I am more worried about the future. I think in the future as costs per year increases, college will be way too expensive and suggest that you look into ways of lowering college costs.
