Family Story:

Felicita was born in Oaxaca (Southeastern Mexico). . When she was 14, Felicita’s mother tried crossing the American border but she was sent back to Mexico and ended up in Ensenada. Her mother went back to Oaxaca for her family and moved them to Ensenada. Throughout Felicita’s childhood her family moved back and forth from Oaxaca to Ensenada. Felicita had to stop studying at a young age to be able to work and help support her family. When she was 15 years old and living in Oaxaca, she got pregnant with Carlos, and a year later with Gerano. The boys have different fathers, and neither has been a part of their son’s lives. But over the years, she has always had the desire to make a good life for herself and sons. She returned to Ensenada and got a job packaging vegetables making $52 dlls a week to support her family. She found a piece of land she could get on credit, and is still paying it off. Her parents, sister, and nephew moved in with her and built a small room (shack) on her lot. Felicita desires a better future for her family.
