My name is Liliana Juarez, I am originally from Zacatelco Tlaxcala Mexico. I have a 3-year-old baby. For most of my life, I have been living in my country of residence (Mexico). I finished university in the state of Puebla with a degree in criminal sciences and a master's degree in Criminalistics. Previously I was doing professional internships at the Puebla state prosecutor's office. I have been living in New York for approximately 3 years.
The covid 19 epidemic changed our day to day since we didn't really know how we were going to survive. It was a fear I had, not knowing what to do if someone in my family had the virus. But thank God we had no infections or losses so far. What I hope in the future is to fix my status in this country, to be able to work on my career, which is what I am most passionate about, and thus provide a good life for my daughter.
