Immigration Law | Law
"I am originally from Mexico but have lived in Washington State since I was [nine] months old .... In 2006, as a high school sophomore, I discovered my true immigration status in the United States. I was an undocumented Mexican-American and all of my hopes and dreams seemed to shatter at that point . . . . My parents came to the United States to give their children a better life, and that included an education . . . . When immigration reform does happen, I will then have an opportunity to apply my skills in the workforce without having to work in the shadows . . . . I am a first-generation Latina student and have made it my responsibility to represent my community with pride and progress though all odds are set against me."
