Sofia told the La Crosse Tribune that as an immigrant from Greece, her mother was not expecting such brash intolerance in America.

"The culture that she's grown up in is sometimes not very accepting, but in coming to the U.S., being a single mother, having a business, she's learning every day how to be a part of the community, how to be accepting," Sofia said.
