I came to the US at the age of 3. Ive been living in Washington for 23 years currently in Bellingham, WA a border city 30 minutes from the Canadian border: I’ve always been a rebel. I’ve always been an educator. Over the last 5 years I’ve spoken all over the country—on challenging the dreamer narrative and the parallels between mass incarceration and mass detention. I have two ted talks and the host of a Shot of Truth Podcast—celebrating, knowledge sharing and story telling by undocumented people. I have loads of opinions which is why I created this platform with my close friends. I am a change maker fellow and a Dream Lead Institute alum. I am a queer undocumented womxn of color. I am a physical empath. I am my ancestors paving the road for the next generation. I am undocumented. I am loud and proud of it. Not only am I here to stay. I am here to fuck shit up.
