I have been in the U.S for the past 18 years of my life. I was brought by my parents to the U.S to be able to live what we call the American Dream, have better opportunities, and receive a good education. Being an undocumented student in this country, is very difficult. I've been discriminated and I've gotten a lot of hate as well. Being open about this, specially with it being such a controversial topic has already been difficult enough. I've been understanding and respectful of other people's political beliefs. However, I don't often receive that in return. There's hundreds of opportunities I've had to turn down because I don't have a piece of a paper that states I am a citizen. I fear constantly that any day now, someone will knock on my door and take me away along with all the hopes and dreams I have to be able to be someone in life. I am tired of constantly living in fear and want to be able to be at peace. Being a student under DACA, your future isn't completely secure. I have found my home at Illinois State University, am majoring in special education in hopes of becoming a great educator some day. I would love to continue my education and be able to walk down that stage and get my degree with my name on it. Going through the process of getting a green card(or a visa)is a very long and expensive process that I am willing to take on if it means staying in this country to continue to chase after my dreams. I am not the type of person to give up easily and my future is very important to me. I was taught to always be proud of where Im from and to always keep my head up. My mom is a single mother who works days on end to provide my siblings and I with what we need in order to be successful and cared for. My little brother of 5 has Autism and Im often working only part-time to be able to take care of him because finding a babysitter is very difficult. I am not the type of person to ask for money for anything personal...I often am the one to raise money for charity and causes that Im passionate about so this is a first for me. The total amount of this process is around $5,000-7,000 but my starting point is $1,000 as my mom and I work hard towards making the rest of it. Any amount that you are willing to donate will help me and my mother so much, whether its something as small as a dollar its greatly appreciated. Please, no hate for this. I am just a motivated student like many looking for a way to continuously chase after getting a proper education and degree. My best friend, Jessica was kind enough to help me out by being the one collecting the money for me! I hope you help those around you who might need help as well! Thank you so much for all the support and god bless you all!
