Join us on this episode with Veronica Aguirre Davis in her story of recognizing her right to be in this country and finding her power and freedom again!

    Over the past few years, racism has seemed to increase in America. From online bulling, to controversial comments by politicians, and to mass shootings targeting specific ethnic and racial groups. Racism, to some seems, to have become an epidemic. However, for some people, racism isn’t new. It is something they have dealt with since they were young. They grow up with being called names and may have been in physical danger just because of the color on their skin or where they were born. 

    Our guest, Luis Carazo, experience racism while growing up. However, he has managed to stay positive and has forgiven those who have hurt him.  On this episode of My Immigrant Life, Luis shares how he has stay positive through all his hardships and how we can create a world where misguided hatred minimized.
