WINSTON-SALEM, U.S. -- Amana Bhuiyan felt strong sympathy for Hillary Clinton when U.S. first lady Michelle Obama recently referred to the Democratic presidential hopeful as the daughter of "an orphan" and "a small-business owner who stayed up nights ... working hard to keep their family afloat."
Amana, a student at Salem College and the daughter of Muslim immigrants from Bangladesh, said she could not help but think of her own parents. "I was born here, but I know the hardships my parents had to go through as immigrants. I think Hillary is someone who can understand and relate to that kind of experience," Amana said. "Donald Trump was born rich and has no idea about such hardship," she said of Clinton's Republican rival.
