Recently I was a part of a conversation panel organized by Catholic Relief Services and co-sponsored by the Wolfington Center. The panel was called Dialogue with Migrants: Why we are here. I got to discuss my immigration story with the other panelists and all the people who attended the event.
My name is Alissa and most of my friends call me Ali. I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela, and I came to the United States in May 2018 to study at Cabrini University, and so far I am truly loving the experience! I am a musician and photographer and I would like to dedicate myself to filmmaking, documentary and photojournalism. My major is allowing me to explore all the different areas I am interested in, and my new position as a blogger for the Marketing and Communications Department is a great opportunity for me to grow as a media producer and share my insights with the Cabrini community. I am happy to be here and I can't wait to share my experiences with you all.
