Arij Johri (Pakistan)

“Mentally there is so much going on, yet I don’t know if I have the right to express it.” 

“There’s so much stigma around the undocumented community, where we do not think it’s okay to talk about our things…but I want to tell everyone- we do. Let’s make the change together. Let’s talk about it. Let’s help each other out. Let’s make sure that we are all human beings, and we all deserve the right to express.”
