The Carnegie Corporation today honored 38 immigrants who have become naturalized Americans for their personal achievements and for their contributions to the social fabric of America, among which highlighted the Mexican singer and actress msdress.co.uk purple prom dresses.
In a statement, the Carnegie Corporation, established in 1911 to promote understanding in society, announced the awards to a group of immigrants notable for the tenth consecutive year, just two days before the commemoration of the Independence of the United States.
Vartan Gregorian, president of the Corporation, said in a statement that the founder of this organization, Andrew Carnegie, came to the United States as the son of a couple of “poor immigrants” to eventually become one of the greatest philanthropists of the country.
“His devotion to American democracy emerged from his belief that the infusion of talent that immigrants bring to the country remains vibrant American society,” Gregorian said.
Other winners are the US Attorney Southern District of New York, the Indian immigrant Preet Bharara; Australian writer winning the Pulitzer Prize, Geraldine Brooks; and the director of the Metropolitan Museum, the Englishman Thomas Campbell.
Among Latinos awarded in addition to Thalia, they highlight the Colombian actress Sofia Vergara; Under Secretary of State Maria Otero Bolivia; Venezuelan Eddie Perez, baseball coach; and the Cuban trumpet player Arturo Sandoval.
