The student in the interview wishes to remain anonymous because of her status as an undocumented immigrant.

I was 2 years old when I came to the U.S., so I learned how to ride a bike here, and read, learned how to talk English and Spanish at the same time. I was very young, so this is my home. This is all I know.”
