A Visa for a Dream


LeeRoy Arroyo or simply “Arroyo” is from the Dominican Republic and moved to downtown Los Angeles two years ago. He works several jobs including one as a dishwasher in Little Tokyo’s Urban Seoul but one day hopes to open up his own restaurant. Like many immigrants, Arroyo left the Dominican town of  Constanza and boarded a plane “Looking for a visa for a dream,” he said quoting a song by Dominican singer Juan Luis Guerra.
