“I believe in the power of education and voluntarism, and I owe it all to my mother, who was a single parent and didn’t make it to high school herself. Because of her, and the opportunities opened up to me through DACA, I now proudly serve my community though various democratic organizations including a previous Congressional internship with Rep. Jackson Lee. We must keep fighting to keep and expand DACA for those who are still in the shadows and don’t yet have the opportunity to contribute to society.”
