An undocumented student cannot receive financial help with federal funding, but being a documented student, I'm able to sign up for Financial Aid and all my education is paid for because of my family's income. The government will not allow my fellow classmate to continue their education and have the same opportunity of success because of not having documentation of being an American citizen.

I had not been to a driving range (since I was in my teens) and I had never played golf on a course before....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Personal Experience]
