Jerin was invited to speak to high school students about turning obstacles to opportunities and helping others along the way. In this inspiring talk, Jerin will recount her journey from being a scared and depressed undocumented teen to becoming a successful activist and entrepreneur. Until recently, Jerin was private about her prior immigration status. She is breaking her silence to inspire others who feel afraid and discouraged by the current administration. She hopes that her story of overcoming structural barriers--being undocumented, poor and a woman of color--will inspire others to pursue their own dreams.
