Karla Burton’s story begins in 1998 when she was 8 years old. That’s when her parents brought her and her younger sister to Los Angeles from Honduras. 

Raised in L.A., as a teenager she dreamed about life post-high school, but envisioned her destiny as an “undocumented” immigrant woman helping her mom clean houses. “I felt kind of scared because I didn’t know where my future was going,” Burton tells Yahoo Life. 

That uncertainty coupled with a loss of identity made it difficult for Bruton to feel she belonged. “I have maybe, like, an identity issue,” she explains. “I grew up here. I wasn’t sure if I could identify as a person from Honduras … or an American.”

For many young immigrants, identity can be a struggle. They’re born in one country, are raised in the U.S., but don’t have ties to their country of birth. Home is America.

There is no doubt that JioMart will upset the apple cart and break into the top three e-commerce players in India backed by its large offline retail presence, bulk sourcing capabilities for economies of scale, ownership of supply chain and warehousing and cross category campaigns where it will push

18-year-old Dakota Guild just graduated from high school. His drive is not limited to the classroom or the golf course.

GRESHAM, Ore. — About ten years ago, Dakota Guild got hooked on an idea. The result has expanded to a shop on Southeast Division Street in Gresham.

“We’re open by appointment only, but we’re putting the finishing touches on,” said Guild, the owner of Guild Golf Carts – and only 18 years old. So if you do the math, he started out on this venture when he was only eight.

“We started very small – we had one golf cart to drive around our property, take down the garbage,” he said.

Guild says the driveway at their house is about 1,000 feet long. The cart made it easier to do things like check the mail. The family bought it in Hillsboro for about $500.

“We sold it the next summer
