This is a short story about the first time I translated for an immigration screening. It is a work in progress that will show the personal aspects of immigration not reflected on legal documentation.
Maria Fernanda Olivarez
An emerging writer at the intersection of politics and the personal, Maria Fernanda Olivarez loves to debate, give back through volunteering, and is known to bust a move swing dancing. An avid reader of the news, Taylor Swift/pop music aficionado, and thoughtful introvert, Maria wants to make her mark on the world through policy, politics, writing, and definitely not math. Fun fact: she loves sloths. She won second place speaker in a debate tournament about cryptocurrency. She is a first-generation Guatemalan American and the eldest of three siblings. She keeps her circle of friends close and books closer.
