My life has not been defined by my immigration status, but, like so many, it is something that now looms large with the current political fight in Congress over immigration laws. DACA was a dream come true. As an actor, it gave me the confidence to book more work and speak my mind a little louder without fear that my status would be used against me. But most importantly, it gave me some peace of mind that I wasn’t going to get separated from my family. I am now working with Define American, an organization that has helped so many others tell their own immigration stories through its digital story platform.
