“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.”

“Since I’m undocumented and I don’t have DACA, I am less likely to qualify for scholarships and when I found this blog I started crying. I identify with the creator of this page because she is from Baja California. I’ve come to see that I am eligible for more scholarships than I thought. Especially since I have been looking for more scholarships for people like me.”

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.”
