The attorneys at Hacking Law Practice LLC are devoted to fighting for the rights of Immigrants and their families. Immigration cases in the United States can be a long and drawn out process but we strive to provide information and resources that will help alleviate the stress along the way. When someone is facing an immigration issue in this country, it can have serious effects on many different aspects of their life. However, it can also create wonderful success stories. We are proud to have introduced The Nargis E. Ragab Scholarship for First Generation Immigrants and the Children of Immigrants.
This award was aptly named after one of the many amazing immigrants to this country, Nargis E. Ragab. She is the mother of one of our partners, Amany Ragab Hacking. Nargis came to this country from El Mansura, Egypt in 1979 in search of a better life. She came with three children, four suitcases and not much else. Having sold her gold and other prized possessions so she could buy four tickets to America, there was not much money left over. When she came to America, she struggled to raise her children, find work and assimilate. All of her children graduated from college, married, had children of their own and contributed to their life in America by working, voting and being active members of their communities. She loves this country and loves immigrants. She wants us all to persevere and succeed. It is this hard work, tenacity and love of immigrants that bring this scholarship to life.
We aim to spread awareness about the very serious immigration issues within the United States. By creating this scholarship and providing students with an opportunity to share their stories, these immigration success stories will serve as a beacon of hope for others. One student will be selected to receive this $1,500 scholarship award.
Thank you to everyone who applied for the Nagris E. Ragab Scholarship!
