Clara had learned a lot from her short time in America . She believed that everyone deserved a fair chance. That you had to stand together and fight for what you wanted . And most importantly that you could do anything you put your mind to .
Clara was young and couldn't speak English nor knew the ways of her new home in America but she left her mark and what she believed in.
