‘I am an undocumented immigrant. That means that I was brought here as a child from Mexico to the United States for a better life and better opportunities for me and my family. I really want to be a citizen of the United States. The sad part is that there’s no clear pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. We need immigration reform in order to become naturalized. There are no channels for it. I cannot become a citizen unless the laws are changed or unless I get married to someone who is a United States citizen. Right now, though, the dream is to graduate high school and to go to college. I’d like to play soccer for college and I want to be a photographer. I want to be a role model for other people who want to come to this country. I’d like to help them, work with them, and support them and to show the world that the dream of America is possible, even if it isn’t easy.’ #welcomingsaltlake
