Educating Maryland Kids


Sign the Pledge to defend the Maryland DREAM Act

A hope was crushed

VeronicaMy name is Veronica Martinez-Vargas and I am a Dreamer. I came to this country at the age of ten to be reunited with my family. I am greatly grateful for having had the opportunity to be here. It is in here where I’ve aspire to work in the medical field, to be able to help the community that has welcomed me from the beginning.

In mid July I decided that after a year of waiting, I would finally apply to the university I had hope to attend after graduating high school, and by July 30th I was accepted.

Being accepted to Salisbury University meant that I am on the right path to achieving my dream. However, I will not be able to transfer since I would have to pay out-of-state tuition. It’s a struggle paying for school on my own, more so when it is out-of-state tuition.

At the realization that I will not be able to attend Salisbury University to study biochemistry this spring, I felt like a hope was crushed.

The Maryland Dream Act would make it possible and is the only way for me to attend any university I get accepted into without worrying about the financial cost.
