We are living a period of time in the U.S. where justice is not there anymore,
for me as an immigrant who fled the violence of my home country it's a matter of survival to tell these untold stories about the immigration problematic but focusing more on what's happening inside the country and not just in the borders, also I strongly believe in the importance of storytelling and how we as immigrants can start reclaiming our own narratives to show the world the reality of our own struggle with dignity. For me is important that this doesn't became a porno-misery essay like the many we saw every day in the media.
