How I coped with chronic trauma from growing up with undocumented parents

    Growing up in Watsonville this hit home. Thank you for providing space to talk about trama and how we can make a positive impact. My grandfather in fact was a farm worker turned entrepreneur he owned 200 acres of Strawberry Fields in Salinas. I felt like I was always running away and now as an adult like you I am learning to appreciate the good. Keep up the amazing work xoxo

      Thanks for reading Shawnte!! xoxo

    Thanks for sharing.
