I am the proud daughter of immigrants who came to this country with nothing, and became teachers. They sacrificed so much to provide a good life for their children. I want to be the type of role model to my daughter that my mother was to me. As a woman of color, I have fought to be heard, and will continue to advocate on behalf of our community. As a Chicago mom I know first hand the issues that face every working family in Illinois. I am ready to get to work fighting for you and your family everyday.
