One cold, dreary night, there came a late-night knock on the door from the immigration authorities that changed the trajectory of this teenage undocumented immigrant’s life and forced her to escape from her Caribbean Island in search of freedom and safety in America.
Saddled with shame, grief and sadness upon her arrival in America, Veronica lived her life hiding in plain sight and feeling invisible behind a wall of secrecy of being an undocumented immigrant.
Her deep-rooted fear was so traumatizing that even after having qualified for citizenship in America, she still felt afraid of deportation, continued to play small and was not confident in sharing her authentic voice.
Though filled with trepidation and pain in America, her deep desire to pursue an education and align with her soul’s purpose led her to persevere and push forward against all odds as she navigated her way in a vast new culture.
In Undocumented, family psychotherapist Dr. Lynch shares a poignant odyssey, describing what it feels like to be called an illegal alien, unwelcome and not good enough.
