Code the Dream works to bring coding skills to undocumented immigrants
from Triple Pundit
Daisy Howarth didn't learn she and her family were in the country illegally until she was 14 years old. By that time, she'd been living in the United States for over 10 years since her family immigrated from Accra, Ghana, to Connecticut. Her parents were in the middle of a divorce when her father broke the news. Howarth continued to cross many hurdles as a non-citizen, being ineligible for financial aid for college, facing difficulties to renew her driver's license, and walking in a silent shame of being unable to reveal her truth.
