Humans of UCSF: Laura Aguilar
"School has always been a privilege for me. I always think about how I want to do my best because I want it to be worth the efforts my family has put forth. Being undocumented at sixteen created a lot of barriers, but when I am able to overcome them, I feel so much stronger. That being said, I don’t want to be identified by my immigration status. When people see me, I want them to see me for my actions. I’d like to be known as someone you can rely on and remembered for my dedication to support others."
