"I was born in Lima, Peru, and came to the US when I was 11 years old. Growing up undocumented, I was always told to keep my status a secret out of fear of deportation. When DACA came along my senior year of high school it was a dream come true."
"To me, this election is personal. It's not just Biden versus Trump. It's about the safety of my undocumented mother, the future of my friends who depend on the DACA program, securing Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for my Venezuelan family, and so much more. We need a leader who sees our immigrant community for what it is, resilient and beautiful, and that will fight for it, and that leader is Joe Biden."
"I always saw myself as small compared to my white counterparts. I felt like politics wasn't my place, that it wasn't for people like me — a low-income, first-generation Latina immigrant. As Latinxs, we need to recognize the power we have in our stories, our actions, and our numbers."
