Hi guys!

Hope you guys are good. My name's Agnes! I've been a lurker here for about 3 years and finally thought I would say hello Better late than never right? Anyways so my situation is a little different from a lot of people. I came to the United States when I was 11 (freshly 24 now).

Unfortunately, I missed out on DACA privilege by about 2 months, (I didn't even know I was undocumented until I had to file something with Homeland Security; another long story). Yup, I checked out on all the requirements, except for the part that I had to be undocumented before June 15, 2012. Bummer! But this didn't stop me! I went on to college and graduated last year.

Now i'm dealing with life after graduation and finding ways to make money without a social. In college I was able to get by because I live in a state that gives undocumented people a lot of financial aid, which was a huge weight off my shoulders.

Since i've pretty much grown up here most of my life, It will always be where I call home. Obviously I don't want to leave and be banned to seek opportunities elsewhere, so I was wondering what are some creative things you guys did before DACA came along? I'd kindly appreciate your responses!

Thanks and can't wait to hear from you guys
