This cartonera details the personal experiences of a first-generation Mexican-American GVSU student who identifies as undocumented. The cartonera touches on activism, the fear of deportation, and the great responsibility placed on children of immigrants as they attempt to build a better life. This work asks the important question of whether freedom is truly achievable for undocumented individuals in the United States and ends with a dedication to those who feel unseen and go unheard.
