Because being undocumented stunts your personal growth.
It sucks your soul. It leaves you empty. It leaves you frustrated.
It leaves you angry. It puts you through waves of unforgiving rage.
It leaves you depressed under a cloud of fear and shame.
It makes you question yourself and what you did wrong. What you could have done better.
It makes you question your worth.
Read Alaa’s full letter to her parents, it’s a recount about her experiences growing up as an undocumented immigrant.
So much truth, pain, emotion, and hope in this letter.
