I'm a student with a lifelong passion for human rights. This isn't because I feel some subliminal duty to sacrifice myself or others, but rather out of a profoundly selfish desire to make this world a little better for myself, and at some point I realized that to achieve that, it wouldn't be enough to just fulfill my needs, but to assure and protect the fundamental rights and liberties promised to us by our constitution. I am a strong believer that "injustice anywhere threatens justice everywhere" and I am devoted to doing what I can to put an end to the exploitation of individuals who have a burning passion for this life. I was born in Colombia, but do not consider myself a Colombian. I am an American, despite the fact that the society I grew up in has never granted me that title. I am... an Undocumented Citizen, speaking out against injustice and undaunted by tyranny.
