    My parents brought me to the USA when I was 15 years old from Microscopy, México. I'm the daughter of a construction worker and a house keeper. However, since I was in México, I wanted to become someone important. I went to Sequoia High School and Cañada Community College. Then, I transfer to San Jose State University. I had no money and no legal papers. I was awarded the…
