At college, Sarah encounters mostly students from the majority American Christian culture, which has been urbanized for generations. In order to pay for school and get good grades, Sara must ignore her family, to work and study. She wants to fit in and learns to talk, dress and act like her American peers. She leaves college with her teaching degree and $1,000, which she won in an essay contest. She misses her parents, and she is lonely, but they do not fit into the life she has chosen for herself. Sarah made a conscious decision to separate herself, and yet she continues to be ostracized by the world she yearns to be a part of.
