Elizabeth Salomoni Steger has always been a dreamer with a purpose. As a child growing up in Paraguay, she dreamed of earning a degree from an American university.

In this work we meet Elizabeth Salomoni Steger; born and raised in Paraguay,Elizabeth dreams of being schooled in America and share her journey of making her dream a reality. We begin her journey in her land and I particularly enjoyed learning about her country, customs and her family; it gave a personal touch to her story. As we travel with her we see through hard work and faith her dream become a reality. I believe this book shows the true spirit of our wonderful country America. Here, dreams become reality, hopes are born and faith is rewarded, as shown in Elizabeth's life. This work is a real testimony to the determination of a young woman and the blessings that America has to offer. God bless America and God bless Elizabeth as she continues to reach for the stars.
