Ruben’s #WeBelongInCollege Story
It was only when he started to apply to college that Ruben learned that he was undocumented, and as a result could not apply for federal financial aid. He thought this meant he would never be able to go to college and was devastated. Thankfully, Ruben’s school counselor provided the guidance he needed to apply to scholarships so that he could pursue his college dreams.
Now he has a message for undocumented students like him: “it is possible”!
