From Living Without Papers to a Lawyer in the Courtrooms

Jose Campos

This is the story of a boy who was born in the middle of a civil war. He lacked wealth, and sometimes he experienced hunger. At the age of 17, this boy went looking for the American Dream. He became an undocumented immigrant, he had no money; however, he managed to work hard, hustle for a living, and he used the little money he earned to get an education. The boy came to America without knowing the English language. After 12 years of hard work, he managed to graduate from law school and eventually get proper immigration papers by a miracle. He took his chances and now he manages his own law firm. This is my story.
