Immigrant of the Day: Denis Estimon (Haiti)

Denis Estimon came to the U.S. from Haiti as a first-grader. Between the language barrier and being the new kid, Denis felt "isolated" and "lonely." Denis eventually found his way, and even became popular. But he didn't forget that feeling.

As a senior at Boca Raton Community High School, Denis created a student group called We Dine Together. The group's goal? No student should eat lunch alone.

Steve Hartman over at CBS has the story:

The one student group has now become a movement. Check out the We Dine Together  Facebook page or @wedinetogether on Twitter.
