seek understanding and acceptance of what makes us who we are. In these times, there are so many people
looking for ways to fight for a more just, loving, peaceful world united in diversity."

to safety. I see hundreds of people who have donated
nearly half a million dollars to my scholarship fund to
help undocumented immigrants attend college. I see
that America, and that is the one I will keep fighting for."
