About the Author

My journey as an immigrant in this country began at the age of ten. I was brought here as a small child not knowing the culture, the language, the customes, nothing for that matter. I quickly assimiliated and became part of the norm. I've always have tried to be as normal as the next person, however carrying the label of an immigrant has proved to be tough in terms of completely assimilating into the main culture. While being a functional member of mainstream society there's no denying the fact that I am still an undocumented immigrant. My status has provided me with an unique perspective as far as how I am perceived, how I perceive others and how I would like to be perceived. Today, despite of my status, I've been able to educate myself and hold a degree in human communications from Cal State San Bernardino. While I so highly anticipate an immigration reform that will prove to be in my favor, I've taken the time to reflect and thus write this book about my journey and experience about an educated immigrant who is eager to have an opportunity to succeed in this country. I wrote this book with a sense to create awareness for those in the Latino/Immigrant community as well as for those who reside outside of this group. It is my intent to motivate and inspire those who have an opportunity to do something unique with their lives. Further, I would also like to show those who are against an immigration reform that indeed there are those of us in this group who would love to have the opportunity to remain here legally and contribute in a positive way to society. For those of you who are in a similar position as myself, I would like to inspire you to reach beyond the common expectations. We too shall have our chance!
