When I was first applying to graduate school as an undocumented student (in 2010), I was able to connect with fellow undocumented grad students. I can’t thank them enough for all of the advice they gave me. Thanks to them, I was inspired, determined, and ready to go to graduate school! In 2011, I began my grad school journey at San Diego State University to pursue a Master’s degree in Sociology. During this time, I created this blog because I wanted to share my experiences and advice about going to grad school with fellow undocumented students. Hence the name “My (Un)Documented Life”, which was inspired by the initial theme of the website: a place where I could “document” my life as an undocumented student. In other words, I started this online website as a form of giving back- to help fellow undocumented students pursue their own grad school journeys.

As undocumented students, our experiences extend beyond the school setting- we face many challenges, opportunities, limitations, and more inside/outside of the school. And, not all who are undocumented have the opportunity to go to college. Thus, in this website, we write about the many different aspects that are relevant to the undocumented experience.  It is our hope that this online community will continue helping more undocumented immigrants and allies all across the world.

Thank you for your help!
