Today marks 5 years since DACA has been created! For many people who dont know, my husband is undocumented. He is an amazing human being who has contributed so much of his life to helping others.
He currently works for USC as a college advisor and works to help underrepresented, low income, and underserved students apply and get in to college. Even before USC, he has helped thousands of students prepare and get into college through his work at College Summit. Every day he works towards improving the lives of others and the well being of our community.
I have seen the impact that he has made in many peoples lives, including my own. As he starts his Masters in Social Entrepreneurship at USC next week, I couldn't even imagine how people could be so judgemental towards undocumented immigrants who do so much to better themselves and the community around them.

5 years ago I was able to become DACAmented. Because of that, I have been able to work and provide for my family. I can now have a drivers license and can drive myself where I need to go. I have purchased my first house. I have completed my first year studying art at ASU. Having DACA has provided me the opportunity to become a stronger human being and my dreams are to help others. I can still remember that day, it was my opportunity for me to overcome the feeling of hopelessness that ate me up inside. I can also remember feeling so happy yet super sad, my brothers and sister did not fit the qualifications to be allowed this same opportunity. I am a DREAMer and I dream of the day when laws like this will not be needed, we are all interconnected and all our collective actions affect our reality we live in. Peace, Love and Happiness. #DACA #daca5years

#daca5years has given me hope to pursue higher education and potentially have a legal status. It's what motivates me to get good grades and become a #dreamer . One thing is for sure, we are #heretostay πŸ’œπŸŒŽβœ¨πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬

Comment below πŸ‘‡πŸ½ join the conversation using hashtag #DACA5years πŸŽ‚ *"Five years ago, President Barack Obama made an announcement that would drastically change the lives of up toΒ 1.9 million young immigrantsΒ who moved to the United States as children. On June 15, 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) was born, temporarily deferring deportations and providing renewable two-year work permits for eligible undocumented youth." This was a result of the resilient efforts of undocumented youth and allies across the nation to pressure the previous administration to provide relief to immigrants across the nation. #LaLuchaSigue πŸ“Έ @me_dicen_el_dreamer

Five years ago, my college bound counselor, Lauren Quigley, and my drama teacher, Caitlin Stanton, invited my mom and I to Lauren's office. Lauren told my mom that I wasn't eligible for any federal aid because of my undocumented status. My mom started crying because she worried that I wouldn't be able to get to college. However, Lauren and Caitlin promised my mom that they would help me get into a good college.

True to their words, I was a finalist for Questbridge and got accepted to the University of Notre Dame. I want to use DACA to improve Notre Dame for its undocumented students. As a rising Sophomore, I received a grant from the Institute of Latino Studies to research medical schools' policies towards undocumented students. I am now working on sharing my research with Notre Dame officials.

In this upcoming year, I will be one of the President's of Student Coalition of Immigration Advocacy and continue to work with We Stand For to educate everyone on immigration and immigration rights. I will continue to adamantly share my undocumented story because I still do not see any Asian undocumented stories. There many undocumented immigrants that aren't of Hispanic and Latino heritage. I want to see more black undocumented stories, more Arab undocumented stories, more Chinese undocumented stories and on and on! It's time the media share all these unique stories.

DACA has allowed to partake in so many activities. But, I will not hesitate to criticize that DACA needs to be improve so that more undocumented youth can take advantage of the opportunities around them. I hope in the upcoming years that more undocumented immigrants are eligible for DACA and the media reflects all the different voices and heritage of DACA recipients.

Yesterday marked the 5th year anniversary of the announcement of DACA. Since then hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrant youth have reaped the benefits of a work permit, a social security number, and some relief from deportation. 790,000+ beneficiaries to be exact. We are extremely happy to see that their health and well-being have also seen such improvements as a result. Let's continue advocating to provide similar relief to the millions of undocumented immigrants that wait for a similar opportunity to thrive. #DACA5years

Thanks to #daca, I have the opportunity of working for an amazing #nonprofit in #chicago, Chicago Children's Advocacy Center. We are the front line responders of child sexual abuse for the city of Chicago. Now more than ever, I have a clear sense of purpose and leave work everyday feeling accomplished and rewarded. For those who watch Law and Order: #SVU, I work at the Chicago location. Even better, I work with my sister!! Back in November, I was hired by #SAIC, who rescinded the job offer due to not receiving my work permit on time. I was devastated and it took me a while to get back on track. Fast forward half a year later and now I find myself working with the #realsuperheroes and working 3 jobs! I don't go to work anymore, I contribute towards a better world.
Today marks a month at #CCAC and #daca5years. Thank you to #Obama and those who advocated for the #dreamers in this country. I had a dream and it is now a reality. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ #daca #daca5years #immigrad #dreamer #hustle #heretostay #realsuperheroesdontwearcapes #ilovemyjob #persevere #thepearlofthepacific #everythinghappensforareason
