Claudia - Define American

Claudia

Queens, NY

Claudia’s story is just one of many. One in eleven-million to be exact. Every single day, mothers and fathers, and even children themselves, are driven to do the unthinkable, in pursuit of the so-called American Dream, only to quickly discover it’s more like a nightmare at times. Over a decade ago, Claudia made the most difficult decision of her life, abandoning everything and everyone she’s ever known, in dire search of a better life for her and her son. How much would you be willing to sacrifice for the ones you love? When survival is your only option, you’ll do whatever it takes. Claudia is undocumented, unafraid, and unapologetic.
