This is my story, I have overcame so many obstacles. Coming here illegally, getting kicked out of school, and landing in the system. But most importantly I overcame all of that went back to school and turned my life around. I just started my doctorate program at cal state la at just 24 years old. Still undocumented without daca. Obstacles never stop though, because of my status I cant receive any loans or financial aid so i have to pay for it out of pocket which is extremely difficult. I want to put my story out there to motivate others and to shed light on my situation.
