Immigration reform and pathway to citizenship

Major: Business

Project: Increasing the resources available to Latino immigrants in general and finding ways to help them gain citizenship. I hope to assist them with any injustices they have experienced due to their legal status.

Inspiration: My parents are immigrants who have sacrificed a lot to give my sisters and me a better future. I feel strongly about this social issue because the amount of hard work and determination that the Latino immigrant community puts into having a stable future deserves to be recognized. They should have the same rights as any other group of people.

Future Goals: I hope to make the Latino immigrant community feel seen and heard. Through my social impact work, I want to find at least a start towards justice for this community.
