Ximena Cardoso-Sloane, originally from Ecuador, lives in Round Rock with her family and her "beautiful dog."

Ximena Cardoso-Sloane, a math teacher in Round Rock, never planned to move to the U.S. She left her native Ecuador in 2000 to visit a friend in America — and ended up staying.

"In my heart," she says, "I always was a citizen of the world."
