Senior Ana Mendoza speaks about her status as a DACA recipient

[dropcap size=small]A[/dropcap]na Mendoza was brought to the United States when she was a 3 ½ year old baby in the hopes that she would have an opportunity to build a better future for herself. She started school in the Paso Robles Unified School District in the fall of 2004 and since then she has worked hard to establish herself in the community. Mendoza is currently taking multiple AP courses such as AP Literature an AP BC Calculus. Her status has not stopped her from applying to many colleges across the  United States such as USC, Princeton, Yale, Fresno State, Brown, Harvard, Stanford, Pomona and Cal Poly.

“I actually have a Cal Poly shrine in my room right now,” she said.

She is passionate about dance and takes ballet classes at the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation where students have the opportunity to take classes related to the arts for free. In her video feature she discusses her experiences as a DACA recipient and the puzzles she has faced throughout her life.

Ana Mendoza habla sobre su estado como recipiente de DACA

[dropcap size=small]A[/dropcap]na Mendoza fue traída a los Estados Unidos cuando tenía 3 ½  años de edad con la esperanza de tener la oportunidad de construir un futuro mejor para ella. Comenzó a ir a la escuela en el Paso Robles Unified School District en el otoño de 2004 y desde entonces ha trabajado arduamente para establecerse en la comunidad. Ahora Mendoza toma múltiples cursos de AP, como AP Literatura y AP BC Cálculo. Su estado no le ha impedido aplicando a muchas universidades en los Estados Unidos, como USC, Princeton, Yale, Fresno State, Brown, Harvard, Stanford, Pomona y Cal Poly.

“De hecho, tengo un santuario de Cal Poly en mi habitación en este momento”, dijo.

Ella es una apasionada del baile y toma clases de ballet en el Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation, donde los estudiantes tienen la oportunidad de tomar clases relacionadas con las artes de forma gratuita. En su función de video, analiza sus experiencias como receptora de DACA y los rompecabezas que ha enfrentado a lo largo de su vida.
