Get DACA, pursue your dream job

Adriana Meza feared she wouldn’t be able to graduate college and pursue a teaching career in the United States. As an undocumented student, she lacked a social security number — required to declare her college major and pass a background check to work with children. She set out to get “DACAmented.” “Once Meza got DACA, her college career took off. She was able to declare her major, and began working with children. She became the first person in her family to graduate from college.” Meza’s story is on We’Ced.
