Luke: DACA “Gave Me A New Faith, And Brought Out A New Me To Reject Fear”

Recently Sen. Dick Durbin shared the story of Luke, a gifted student and community leader who is currently a PhD candidate in chemistry at the University of Chicago.

According to a letter Luke wrote to Sen. Durbin, “DACA did much more than shielding me from deportation and changing my immediate circumstances; it gave me a new faith, and brought out a new me to reject fear and continue worthwhile pursuits.”

“DACA has been tremendously empowering. Wherever I find myself in the future I hope to mentor, encourage, and ultimately empower others.”

Watch Luke’s inspirational story below.
