A visual of my life post-deportation. Much has happened since I decided to be public with my story in 2012 and through a photo essay, I attempt to highlight key moments of a process that has brought a new meaning to my life journey – one in which I have acquired new experiences, worked on interesting projects, and met amazing friends and collaborators. Some of the snapshots featured in this gallery include press conferences, book presentations, advocacy projects, and other milestones that have shaped me as a person, activist, and migration scholar. It is far from being a complete documentation of all the meaningful projects that I have been involved in or moments I have experienced, but it is certainly a glimpse of a story that continues to evolve.
