My Immigrant Story: 

I was born in a town where many Mexican immigrants work in the fields. When my parents came to the U.S., my mom worked in the berry fields and my father had two jobs, picking mushrooms and being a soccer referee. My mother raised me to prioritize my education and to take any opportunities that this country offered and my father taught me to fight back whenever I am pushed back. 

After college, I was a Quaker Fellow for Quaker Voluntary Service where she worked for Juntos and Nationalities Service Center. My time in both NGOs inspired her to work in immigration and work with the community.  As the oldest child in my family, I have paved the road for my younger sisters and I hope that I am able to do the same for the immigrants who have taught me what it means to be “una hoja de los inmigrantes.”
