Help Maria Dream

Help a dedicated, hard working, and motivated CSUN DACA student graduate.
Maria was a student assistant at the Oviatt Library until January 2018.

She completed her DACA renewal in fall 2017, but the permit never came.

As such, Maria has no longer been able to work to support herself and her education. Maria needs our help.

To survive, she took out a $4,000 loan to pay for the expenses her job would have covered (rent, tuition, food, books, and transportation). Maria has filed another renewal application, but until that renewal is approved, she can’t legally work to support herself.

We want to help Maria pay off her loan and cover her expenses until she is allowed to work again.

Maria is kind, generous, and thoughtful. Those that have worked with her have described her as a ray of sunshine.

Please help us support Maria.


-- This GoFundMe would not have been possible without the help and support of many of the people who have worked with Maria.
