When Ibrahim made the decision to go to college, her family wasn’t totally behind her at first. “My culture, they’re not supportive of anything,” she said. “That’s just a fact. If you want to do something, you have to be the adult one and convince them and stand for your own opinion and say, ‘I will do this no matter what.’ If you fail, you prove them right. If you didn’t fail, you prove them wrong. That’s just how it is. I’m not the type of person that proves people wrong — I just do what I want. Whether my family likes it or not, that’s their problem.” (Photo by Tori Schneider)
