Life without DACA would signify a flashback to the past. I refuse to live life with that type of fear anymore. Many may think about my ability to choose whether I am here or not. They may say that people like myself face that as a consequence of our actions. However, the only crime I have committed is to fight for the opportunity to finally have a home with the acceptance of others.

Ultimately without DACA I would not be able to provide for my family and thus my parents would not have a home, I would not be able to travel more freely within the U.S. for my job and I would not have been able to think about savings and building wealth for my future. Without DACA I would not have thought about the possibility of traveling abroad, and quite frankly I would not be fighting alongside my community because I would have had to drop everything to work and survive alongside my family.
