An 18-year-old student at Cousino High School in Warren, Michigan will soon graduate near the top of her class, was named to the Macomb area conference all-academic team, and has been accepted to the University of Michigan’s pre-medical program, according to a report by WWJ Newsradio 950.
But upon graduation from high school, Ola Kaso, an Albanian who has been in the United States with her family since she was 4 years old, faces deportation back to Albania.
“I don’t even know where to start over at. I mean, quite frankly, it would be a culture shock. I know nothing but the United States culture, the way of life, the language. I’m completely immersed within this culture. And to move to a place that’s completely foreign to me is just so, I don’t know, it’s bewildering,” Kaso said.
