UndocuProfessional is providing a safe space for undocumented students transitioning to undocumented professionals to share their experiences, networking, collaborating, supporting and hosting a variety of workshops and more.

Born in Mexico, Sharet Garcia started UndocuProfessionals because she knew from her own experience as an undocumented student, that many faculty, staff, administrators or student advisors didn’t have the information or expertise to advise her on her career path. Her hope is to increase awareness and support for undocumented students in all levels of education that are transitioning to undocumented professional, and she want the ongoing support and encouragement of a community of individuals with similar aspirations and challenges. She has witnessed first-hand the need for resources available for undocumented students in my fields in Higher Education and profession.
