First of all I’d like to say that I’m hesitant to say anything in the first place because even though i don’t have a large following base, It’s still something very private about my life.

I don’t know how many people know this, but I’m an undocumented student.

It was hard growing up to constantly be in fear that I was going to be deported at any moment, any day.  My family has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to sort this out. My mother is the hardest working lady I know and she’s literally given up her entire life for me and my sister.  I hope people see this and realize that not all illegal immigrants are “moochers” or “not paying taxes”.

All my mom’s money goes to resolving this problem and to taxes.  I was awarded a scholarship to UCI only to be told after sending my SIR, that i would not be receiving it due to my status.  

Please don’t be ignorant. Read about the Dream Act. We’re not trying to steal your money or your jobs.  I’ve lived here my entire life.  I’m more American than I am Korean.
