My name is Carolina and I created this online platform in 2011. Having navigated the educational system as an undocumented student I faced multiple challenges. Thankfully, I had a community to support me along the way. I created My Undocumented Life as a way to give back and provide support to fellow undocumented students. I am happy to say that since 2011, My Undocumented Life has reached over one million views as we continue to grow thanks to our loyal readers, passionate team of guest contributors, and collaborators.
My personal background: I grew up undocumented in the United States since the age of twelve. I navigated middle school, high school, college, and three years of graduate school as an undocumented student. I recently completed my PhD from Harvard University.
