In 1998, when Kiranjit Gill was just 4 years old, her parents left their homeland of Punjab, India, and traveled to the United States, settling in Palatine. They wanted their daughter to grow up in "the land of opportunity." It's safe to say Gill -- a 21-year-old who already has studied abroad, published research and worked in the halls of Congress for a prominent Illinois representative -- is well on her way to fulfilling her parents' dreams, as well as her own.
