Michelle Soto is a New Mexico Dream Team chapter lead at her high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She came to the United States from Guanajuato, Mexico to live with her mother in 2009 after seven years of being separated.
Michelle has lived in fear of deportation since then, worrying that one day her mother or brother may not come home. Worrying one day maybe she won’t come home.
Michelle is one of thousands of undocumented youth that qualifies for a clean Dream Act. She hopes a clean Dream Act is passed so that she may attend the college of her dreams when she graduates high school. She also hopes to find employment to be able to help her parents financially and her studies.
At her sixteen years of age, Michelle is well aware of the cruelty and hardship being undocumented in the U.S. can bring.
