I was brought, from Mexico, at 11 months and have been raised here ever since. When you look at me or speak to me, you wouldn't know I'm undocumented. I've felt loneliness, depression, anxiety of what's to come, disillusioned, loss of hope. I've faced challenges and difficult circumstances because of my status. I attend Lehman College and I'm currently a Junior pursuing a double major in Computer Graphics & Imaging and Political Science. It's not an easy journey. Getting arrested on behalf of my community, undocumented youth, and of course, my dreams, means that I will be sending out a strong message: Si se puede! We want the NY Dream Act Now!
Janet Perez Lehman College, 20 years old (Computer Science and Political Science)
