Leticia came to the United States from Mexico when she was in her mid-20s along with her husband and infant daughter. “We moved to America seeking better opportunities and jobs. I wanted to raise my daughter somewhere she could grow up and realize her dreams. That wasn’t possible in Mexico. There were no jobs, limited access to education, no basic services.”
Now at the age of 47, with her daughter having recently graduated college and her 11-year-old son doing well in school, Leticia is able to focus on her new beginning.
