Upward mobility is common for the millions who come to the US. But there’s a lot more to the story.But there’s a complicated, competing reality at work for recent immigrants to the United States and their children, the majority of whom are currently living some version of the American dream. Or, more precisely, the upward mobility component of that dream: the idea that hard work will lead to increased stability and class position for the next generation.
A children's book written by themore than two decades ago is getting a new lease of life after it was recently unearthed online.
In the book, Meghan describes having freckles as being an integral part of her identity even if some people think they are "strange".
A Face without Freckles... Is a Night Without Stars was written by Meghan when she was in high-school.

Ohio private school students denied reenrollment after moms' 'inflammatory' campaign against 'indoctrination'
An Ohio private school is denying reenrollment to several students, alleging that their mothers breached part of their contract by leading a public campaign against the school's purported attempt to "indoctrinate" students with left-wing ideas. The decision capped off months of efforts by parents Andrea Gross and Amy Gonzalez to probe Columbus Academy's (CA) activities, which allegedly included divisive concepts about race and anti-conservative sentiment. Fox News has obtained copies of the school's letters notifying Gross and Gonzalez, who lead the Pro-CA Coalition, of the decision.
That was widely believed to be Meghan's first foray into children's literature.
But Meghan dabbled with book writing when she would have been aged around 13 or 14, in the 8th grade at Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles.
According to the back of the book, it was penned by Meghan as a school project.
One of the pages features a drawing of a young girl with curly hair and freckles with the text: "Some people think freckles are strange, while I happen to disagree, because if I didn't have my freckles, then I would not truly be me!!!"
The cover of the book wasby American Carla Hayden, the 14th Librarian of Congress.
‘I have sacrificed a lot’: Growing up LGBTQ+ in India
LGBTQ+ Indians who battle family expectations and social pressures to live their authentic lives share their stories.Like most parents, Sourav’s would like to see him “settled”. In India, however, this is a loaded concept. Being happy, healthy and financially secure are all important, but making a good marriage is the cornerstone of “settling down”. Indeed, 26-year-old Sourav, an IT professional in one of India’s metro cities, would make a wonderful husband to a man of his choice. But that is the problem.
She is the first woman and the first African American to hold the top post of Librarian of Congress.
On the back of the book there is a school photo of Meghan and a description of her which says the young student "wishes to continue writing throughout high school".
It continues: "[Meghan] wants to take a moment to thank her 'mommy' and 'daddy' who gratefully spent their time and effort supporting her".
According to Hayden's tweet, Meghan submitted the work to the US Copyright Office in 1996.
She had applied for the phrase "a face without freckles is night without stars" to be copyrighted.
The phrase may have come from her now-estranged father Thomas Markle, who used to say it to her as a child, The Sun reported in 2019.
Meghan has previously spoken about her love for her freckles and had instructed her makeup artist to not cover them up on her wedding day.

Martin said: "After the ceremony Harry kept saying thank you.
"He was thanking me for making her look like herself."
And in a past interview with Allure magazine Meghan said: "To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot".
