Ivannadi ,

This is what Undocu-healing sounds like! 💗

As immigrants we have gotten ourselves into the idea of living in the shadows and not have a voice. Vicky opens up the space to talk about our stories, our traumas and our success. You’ll feel identified with each episode and find that as undocumented immigrant you are not alone! We all have similar experiences, we can find healing, and, we have a voice together! ✊🏻💗
