‘New American Girls’- Kassandra

Special | 5m 3s

Brought to New York City by undocumented parents at age six, Kassandra kept her status a secret until high school, when she started attending the after-school program Sports & Arts in Schools, and joined Make the Road New York, an organization promoting immigrant rights. With the support of these “allies,” Kassandra became the first in her family to graduate high school.
