To Rory O’Connor, the American dream means having the freedom to pursue whatever one’s dream may be. Rory’s happiness is found in enjoying the fruits of his labor. If he were in a different city, or back in his home country, he might not have the same opportunities. “I think that there is a lot of opportunity here, but you have to have the drive, and ambition, and the talent,” Rory said.
