My dad moved here in the 1960's from India with one suitcase - he was the guy walking through the snow, doing two jobs to support his family here and also sending money to his family in India.

When I wanted to go to grad school, he said: "You need to pay. I have given you everything to be capable. I need to fund and pay for people that need my help in India."
