Resourceful immigrant sets sights on home ownership
Xinyu Wang immigrated to the United States from China in 2006. But when he turned 18, his father told him he'd need to move out and support himself.
So, with the help of Seattle Housing Authority and Neighborhood House, Wang was able to move into Yesler Terrace, where the sense of community was strong and helped fuel his desire to give back.
He taught himself English while earning a bachelor's degree at the University of Washington and working two part-time jobs. He's now on a clear trajectory toward home ownership and living the American dream.
