Election day is upon us in one of the most crucial elections in our lifetime. As an immigrant who migrated from Belize with my family years ago for greater opportunities, this election hits especially close to home. I couldn’t imagine not being allowed to enter the United States to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a fashion designer ,which seemed impossible for a little girl from Belize. Not only was I able to attend one of the top fashion colleges in the country ,but that dream became my reality. I became a fashion designer in New York City . Not bad for an island gal with big city dreams .It is critical that we make our voices heard and take a stand for what is right . We must protect our country’s democracy and keep the dream in tact.
