TONY AHN, THE REASON HE HAD TO BE VALEDICTORIAN IN THE US

Tony Ahn talks about when his family first moved to the US. He had thought his father was a chef, but later found out he was just a dishwasher. His father was in his 40s at the time, and would drink often due to being depressed with his life. Tony hated that and thought about what he could do to help and realized the only thing he could do was study, so he worked hard and was valedictorian for two years during middle school.
