Concord High School junior Ashish Kharel works on his AP Chemistry homework during a recent open period in the library. “We just started this chapter yesterday and I need to get my work done,” he said, adding that studying hard is necessary if he is going to attain his American dream. Kharel, 17, came to the United States five years ago from a refugee camp in Nepal, where every dream seemed bound not to happen. “Coming to America has itself been a dream come true,” he said.
