Gonzalo's US Work Permit

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Gonzalo, and I'm an actor from Mexico City. I moved to the US to pursue my career and graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a BFA in Musical Theatre. I'm currently based out of New York City, where I have been able to work under an OPT permit. This specific permit came with several restrictions, but I still managed to perform in musical productions around the country and even guest-star in a couple of TV shows!

I'm now faced with a challenging and expensive visa application to be allowed to stay and continue working in this country. The O-1 visa application and legal fees are roughly $8,500-$9,000. I have set a goal higher than this amount to account for gofundme fees. I have created this since I’m also not legally allowed to work at all during this time, or I could face deportation. My family and I have sacrificed a lot to settle legal matters up to this point, but we genuinely need help this time.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Anything you can contribute is helpful and much appreciated. I would also greatly appreciate it if you could help by sharing my story.
