No more rags to riches. No more securing a corporate job and a house in middle class America. Our American dream boils down to earning legal status an keeping our families together. I came to the US from Mexico City. I was a school drop out, who fell in love with America’s idea of self-made man. After finishing high school, I earned a BA in History an MA in TESOL. Did I benefit from 2012 DACA? No, I’m too old for that. Can I work in education? No. Can I make a difference? YES!
