Carlos is a Dreamer


About Carlos

My name is Carlos Emilio Diaz. I am 19 years old and I was born in Guerrero, Mexico. I moved to Houston when I was a year old and was raised there my entire life. I am currently a student at UT Austin.

My biggest dream is to provide my parents with everything they need without them having to work. They have sacrificed so much and continue to do so, I feel that's the least I could do. DACA gives me that opportunity and without it, my dream has become uncertain.
