I Am Because We Are Micronesians!

Being a Micronesian in America is as much my personal journey as it is a communal opportunity for common advancement. My success is rooted in the degree to which I help my brothers and sisters succeed in their journeys. How we succeed as a people to overcome negative stereotypes and prejudice as the newest immigrants, legal as we are by virtue of our compact of free association treaty with the united states, depends on how much we pull together to correct the wrongs, bridge the resource gaps, educate others of our uniqueness, support the needy among us, and above all be ambassadors of our islands, our people, our values. I am because we are!
