Last photo set from the DACA story for 100 Days in Appalachia!
After going to Hickory, North Carolina, several times, eating the Martinez' family Ceviche, going to their daughter Lina's QuinceaÃ±era, and really learning first hand how the Dreamers are some of the hardest working people in the country, I am super proud that I was able to illustrate one of the 800,000 dynamic stories of the Dreamers of this country--Couldn't be a more important time to be telling them. This story looks at the determined young woman, Lena Martinez, her family, and DACA and its relationship to a changing Appalachia.
This story has three parts as well as a slideshow of my photos from the assignment!
Thank you to 100 Days in Appalachia and Timothy Pratt for collaborating on this!!! LINK EN EL BIO ðð»ââï¸
