Sharing Their Secrets: Undocumented Students' Personal Stories of Fear, Drive, and Survival
Hernandez, Susana; Hernandez, Ignacio, Jr.; Gadson, Rebecca; Huftalin, Deneece; Ortiz, Anna M.; White, Mistalene Calleroz; Yocum-Gaffney, DeAnn
New Directions for Student Services, n131 p67-84 Fall 2010
The previous chapters have highlighted the financial, academic, emotional, and career challenges undocumented students face in pursuit of their higher education goals. However, an analysis of these issues cannot begin to convey the tremendous stress and anxiety these students endure every day as a result of their illegal status. This chapter provides insights into their experiences from their own personal perspective. The stories of five undocumented students demonstrate how they face their unique challenges with remarkable persistence and admirable determination.
