English Bio:

I was born in Acámbaro Gto. Mexico (1983) In 1986 my parents decided to bring my 2 sisters and me to the US thanks to IRCA 1986 signed by President Ronald Reagan on November 6, 1986 !! In 1998, after so much time and money, my number and my immigration office had finally arrived and that was when I became a permanent resident of the United States. Two years later Bill Clinton signed The Child Citizenship Act of 2000. 2001 I officially became a US Citizen. The whole process only took 15 years. I grew up in La Villita and Brighton Park in Chicago, IL where Mexican culture is outstanding. My photos reflect the pride I have towards my homeland, you praise my obstacles as an immigrant woman living in a state that defines the political landscape.
