Role: To assist those who are seeking a better life conditions
Where are you from? Mexico
Why do you serve? To work with other people who have the same goal as me, to assist immigrants and to educate communities about the importance of diversity. I feel inspired by the strength that many families have in wanting to start a new life, regardless of adversity; and who have also chosen a country that can give them that opportunity. As an immigrant, I identify with those who seek a better life. Being able to serve in NAIP AmeriCorps is a personal goal, besides being able to help those who are in the same situation as me.
What are you passionate about? Volunteering in immigration organizations, learning from other people’s culture through art.
