BC Alum Pens Children’s Book On Living Undocumented

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–To be a Dreamer in the United States is to carry a story of two homes – the one you were born in and the distant place where you settled for a better life. To Brooklyn College alumna Areli Morales, her earliest childhood memories are filled with sights of aging volcanoes in her native Puebla, Mexico, and Brooklyn’s concrete cityscape. Through her debut children’s book, Areli Is A Dreamer, she recounts her adventures, challenges, and lessons as a young undocumented immigrant navigating through the American Dream.
