Gargi Purohit, on being Desi and Undocumented!

Gargi Purohit, on being Desi and Undocumented!

She's desi, from Queens, NY: fighting for change at the University of Notre Dame!

From India, a TacoHut aficionado, and a recent immigration reform activist, she's looking to break the misconception about immigration only being a Latinx issue using her story to educate others.

Explaining the moment she found out about deferred action and seeing how people happy were at her mother's grocery store, to moments hiding from potential deportation, to being at the front lines of protests this past semester, Gargi is fully committed to using her passion for the immigration movement!

She schools me on the US's diversity visa lottery, and provides me with an inspiring story of how one of her educators was also in the same situation and the tremendous impact it had on her high school years.
