Yo soy el sueño Americano de mis padres. This degree is for my parents and all their sacrifes. I am a first generation Latina. At the age of 11 my parents moved to the United States following a better life for me. Growing up I never thought about college and being an illegal immigrant I thought that college wasn’t for me. Being a Dreamer and DACA recipient open many doors for me because for the first time I felt like college was a possibility for me. On June 17, 2018 I graduated from Eastern Washington University with a BA in International Affair with a concentration in Socia-Global Economics and a Minor in Economics. Hoy cumplí una de mis metas. Hoy prometo llevar mi apellido bien en alto y nunca olvidar mis principios. Porque esto es solo el principio de una larga trayectoria 🎓🎉
