Among all the founding fathers, I identify most with Alexander Hamilton. I am an immigrant just like him. Hamilton is a quintessential example of the American Dream. He embodied an archetype we as immigrants are so familiar with: an impoverished young man immigrated to America; driven by ambition, he reinvented himself through hard work and education, and ultimately succeeded. Theodore Roosevelt referred to him as "the most brilliant American statesman who ever lived." Yet, in spite of all his accomplishment, there is no memorial in his honor and his face was not carved into the Mount Rushmore.
