Jacqueline Reyes 9/20/10 SO101 What to know About Second Generations One of the United States main foundations has been migration. Since early American history, people from all over the world have migrated to this country in hopes of a better future. Much has not change since then, today there are still many people coming to this country with those same hopes. This has been true for many Salvadorians here in America. The came seeking new opportunities, and once the found them, they decided to settle in and begin raising their families. This is why it is common to see many second generation Salvadorians because Salvadorians that migrated to the United States had kids who grew up in this country, a different environment as of those from previous generations. Second generation Salvadorians are now a part of their own culture, one that shares similarities and differences from the culture of their parents. The norms and values of this subculture are influence and passed down by older generations. The norms that are expected of second generation Salvadorians is to pursuit an education. It is expected for kids to go to school and continue their education beyond high school; to pursue a career and take advantage of the opportunities that their parents never had. It is expected for them to be grateful for the hard work and sacrifice their parents have done to allow them to have the opportunity of a better future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
