My name is Janeth, I’m 24 years old.
I came to this country when I was 10. We came from a poor and violent state in Mexico. At a small age I had to grow so fast, not having a mom or dad by my side. My mom had to cross the desert and suffer, looking for “THE AMERICAN DREAM” – to be able to feed her two sons, so we can have a better live and study to be bilingual.
DACA has opened so many doors to me and my family. I want to be a translator and entrepreneur. I just want to make my mom proud. And it’s heart breaking knowing what can happen to us since I don’t remember a lot of things from Mexico.
This state is my home and I’m afraid to be sent back and kill all my dreams. Please help us. Please help defend DACA.
