DACA Recipient Named "Rhodes Scholar"

Only a select few obtain the honor of being named a Rhodes Scholar. Jin Kyu Park, 22, was born in South Korea. His parents brought him to the U.S. when he was only 7 years old. He currently attends Harvard University and has already achieved amazing accomplishments.

The "Rhodes Scholarship" is said to be one of the world's most prestigious educational awards, with only 100 allocations allotted worldwide every year. It is an internationally awarded, post graduate, scholarship given to those qualifying who wish to attend Oxford University. The scholarship was created by Cecil John Rhodes, promoting his desire of unity between English nations, while actively choosing recipients who demonstrate signs of high moral leadership, regardless of their career paths. Notable recipients of the Rhodes Scholar are Australian prime ministers  Tony Abbott, Bob Hawke, Malcolm Turnbull, and former U.S. president  Bill Clinton.

In an interview with a Harvard University news outlet, Park stated “I’m thankful that the Rhodes have expanded their eligibility to include DACA recipients.” Park went onto mention that “…it’s important to note that I am just one of 11 million. And this really reflects the fact that if you give DACA recipients a chance, we can really contribute to this country and do amazing things. Every DACA recipient is capable of great things.”

Jin Kyu Park makes a great point as well as a bold statement. Any immigrant or DACA recipients can accomplish great things for a country they love and all it takes is a chance. Facing immigration deportation comes at a cost of knowledge and success, in which the key of the American opportunity can unlock.

American opportunity is what can push a child into accomplishing great things, such as getting accepted into an Ivy League school or the most prestigious scholarship in the world. Ibrahim Law Office has worked with several DACA recipients achieving great things in the United States. These DACA holders include accountants, small business owners, business people, lawyers, and medical professionals.

    "My wife and I are very thankful for Micheal Ibrahim. Before we hired him, we approached many immigration lawyers over ten years to duplicate documents that were destroyed in a fire. The results were disappointing. Micheal was able to find the lost documents. My wife got her permanent residency. He was always available for us during a stressful time. We would like to thank Michael for his knowledge, professionalism, and expertise. We would definitely recommend Michael for immigration services." -Farzad D.
