Children, College, and Drinking: This 17-Year-Old Mexican-American Student Was Accepted to 18 Prestigious Universities Source: Remezcla Courtesy of Children's Defense Fund Josรฉ Alberto Aceves Salvador, with his mother and father. Courtesy of the Aceves family MUSTREAD When next fall rolls around, Josรฉ Alberto Aceves Salvador will begin his undergraduate career. But whether thatโ€™s as a student at Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, Yale, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCLA, or any of the other 11 schools that accepted him remains unknown. Josรฉ โ€“ the son of two Mexican immigrants โ€“ will graduate as the valedictorian of his class at New Open World Academy in Los Angeles. He also has a pretty impressive rรฉsumรฉ. Even then, he felt surprised that so many schools accepted him. โ€œWhen I applied to all these universities, I felt overwhelmed,โ€ he told La Opiniรณn. โ€œI thought I didnโ€™t stand a chance, and that they wouldnโ€™t accept me.โ€ For the 17-year-old student, getting to this moment hasnโ€™t been devoid of obstacles. His parents, who arrived in the country in their 20s, have always worked very hard to provide for their three children. But theyโ€™ve struggled financially at times. Josรฉโ€™s father, Ricardo, juggled multiple jobs. To cope with the stress, Ricardo turned to alcohol. โ€œThe worst part of my drinking is that Iโ€™ve left good jobs where theyโ€™ve paid well, but I quit because of my addiction,โ€ Ricardo said. The family stayed afloat during those tough times because of Josรฉโ€™ mother, Isabel, who works at a hospital. The family of five lives in Koreatown in a one-bedroom apartment. Josรฉ jokes that he โ€œlearned to study with noise.โ€ Over the course of his life, heโ€™s also learned how to manage a busy schedule. Every day, he wakes up between 5 and 5:30 a.m. so that he can arrive at water polo practice by 6 a.m., which runs for an hour and a half. He then begins school at 8 a.m. After school, he participates in a mentor program. In a December 2016 video announcing him as one of the recipients of the California Beat the Odds Scholarship, Josรฉโ€™s classmates thanked him for selflessly devoting his time to helping them with chemistry, pre-calculus, and even with college applications. immigration education
