Below you’ll find testimonials from some of our diverse group of readers.
“I stumbled on your blog, mydocumentedlife.org, a few months ago when I was looking for advice on pursuing law school. Although there has been a lot of news lately when it comes to this issue, I was unable to find an online community in which I can look for support until I found your blog! Your blog has been a source of inspiration and hope whenever I feel discouraged, and I want to thank you for it! Before reading Karla’s article on your blog, I did not even know if law school was possible for someone like me. After reading more and more testimonies on your blog, I now know that graduate school is not only possible for someone like me – it’s already been done before. It gives me courage and confidence to continue pursuing my interests and aspirations.”

“As a Transfer Center Director I am always encouraging our students to think long tern in pursuing a Master’s and PhDs. Your blog was the first I’ve encountered to actually have posts and resources with those interests, thank you! There has been such a groundswell of new Dreamer activists as they find support groups and blogs like yours that give them a collective reassurance of their efforts.”
