On Wednesday, May 30th, 2018, Nataly Morales Villa received news that would change her life forever: she learned that she had been accepted into the prestigious Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Internship Program. This news is significant for someone who has been active in her community to make the world a better place for immigrants around her. From serving at El Refugio and Stewart Detention Center (a detention center for undocumented immigrants) to serving as a canvasser for GALEO, there is no doubt that Nataly thoroughly deserves this unique opportunity. But no achievement is earned without some sort of sacrifice and dedication, and Nataly’s story is no exception.
Nataly was born in El Mezquital, Durango, Mexico. Her parents, who merely studied up to middle school, immigrated to the United States when Nataly was only five years old. They immigrated with the intention of helping end a terrible “cycle of poverty and adversity” in order to help Nataly succeed. Today, the dreams of Nataly’s parents of seeing her reach a level of higher education have come true. Nataly is currently double majoring in Political Science and Spanish at the University of North Georgia. The dream has recently taken a step further with Nataly’s acceptance into the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Fall 2018 Internship Program.
