2013 Nominee: Gaby Pacheco
The New Americano
Gaby Pacheco is a Miami-based DREAMER fighting for the educational rights of young undocumented students. An undocumented American herself, Gaby walked 1,500 miles from Miami to Washington, DC in 2010, urging President Obama to stop the separations of families and deportations of DREAM Act–eligible youth. Through her journey in 2010 and until today, Gaby has used social media as a tool in mobilizing for change and spreading the message of DREAMERS like her.
