    Clinton High School student Tiffany Nguyen thought the US citizenship test would be difficult so she was well prepared.
    "It's hard if English is your second language," she said. "It wasn't easy but I learned it. And I tried really hard and learned about the culture and how to be a good citizen."
    Her hard work paid off; in September, Tiffany became a US citizen. Click here to read more: http://ow.ly/uFw350wB78a
