Research Interests: 
immigration, illegality, race/ethnicity, family, education
Curriculum Vitae: 


(1) Are you currently undocumented?
Were you undocumented but now have papers?

(2) Are you of Korean or Mexican descent?

(3) Do you live in California?

If you answered YES to all 3 of these questions, please consider being interviewed for my research study!
Through this work I hope to improve policy, law, and programs supporting undocumented immigrants
by increasing our understanding on the diversity of experiences living in this situation.

Having witnessed a few friends navigate the constraints of their status,
I am an ally committed to the well-being of the undocumented community both personally and professionally.

Everything that is shared with me will be kept CONFIDENTIAL,
and I will take the utmost care to protect your identity throughout the entire process.
You will receive a $25 gift card for your time.

In a nutshell, I'm looking for individuals who...
- Are of Korean OR Mexican descent
- Are undocumented OR were undocumented, but recently changed status
- Are 21-35 years old (flexible)
- Came to the U.S. before 17 years old
- Live in California
