My name is Elena. I am 17 years-old and I'm a member of WeCount! I spend a lot of time playing sports and helping my mom take care of my little sisters and brother. Our whole family is always involved in lots of activities together in Homestead. I’m joining the Kids Caravan because I want to tell President Trump that families don’t deserve to be separated. Immigrant families like mine have been through a lot and they want to see a change. My dad was deported 5 years ago back to Guatemala, and it has been really hard. My mom takes care of me and my siblings as a single parent. The thing that keeps me going is seeing my mom every morning when I wake up. I don’t know what I would do without her. Now it’s my turn to protect her.
