Some stories are inspiring… they push you to work harder and follow your dreams, like the story of the “Rebel Billionaire” Blakely. Some stories keep you grounded, like the story of the Brazilian billionaire Erika Batista who lost it all and went in a billion-dollar debt in a very short time, he went from a “hero to a zero”, or rather a negative number. Then there are tales that teach you how to work hard, especially when ebing in the media eye, like those of the new billionaire Jessica Alba, and a real estate tycoon who multiplied his wealth Donald Trump.
But some stories are far more than inspiring, they are revolutionairy. This is the story of a Mexican citizen that came to the United States of America having no Visa and made it in the one of the touchest and most competitive industries like Goldman Sachs.
Jessica Acre is the protagonist of the story. She graduated from a University of Texas without a visa, which actually allows undocumented immigrants to enrol and study. Moving t New York, Jessica has an internship in Goldman Sachs, who due to her excellent work, have invited her back to work full time for them. She has later moved on to be a director at this prestigious company.
Goldman Sachs never actually found out about Jessica’s little secret until the story has been published by Bloomberg and went viral. At the time, however, the undocumented immigrant already had a green card after marrying an American citizen. The company later released a statement, saying that chance should be given to those who study at the prestigious American university and want to dedicate their energy, knowledge and power to help the American economy. Moreover, the United States is a country found on immigration and new talent, a country that allows its citizens to reach their heights by working and by being talented.
This is a true story of an American dream coming true, where an undocumented girl from Mexico has reached a high position in Goldman Sachs due to her undeniable talent, knowledge and willingness to work, combined with dedication and will power.
