S04E02 | DREAMing of STEM: #DefendDACA Impacts Dory Castillo’s Physicist Hopes & Science Teaching

Listen here.

800,000 undocumented young people in the US will be endangered if the DACA(Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program ends. PhDivas Liz and Xine interview DREAMer Dory Castillo, an amazing undergrad furthering children’s science education who hopes to become a physicist herself. But because of her undocumented status, she has to live with the threat of deportation to a country she’s never even visited. From Dory’s dreams about studying fluid mechanics and her love of teaching, we turn to discussing issues of respectability, immigration, and the many, many misconceptions about undocumented immigrants, particularly the DREAMers. We support the DREAMers because they are #HeretoStay.
