My name is Sonia, and I’m from Mexico. I have been coming to Mujeres Unidas y Activas for 3 years. I came to this organization because I had problems with immigration. MUA provided me with programs and legal assistance that made it possible for me to stay and thrive in this country. What I like the most about MUA is that you learn so much as a woman and you start wanting the best for yourself. I have learned to not be afraid to speak up, because my testimony can help other women in the same or similar situation as mine. MUA provides a complete transformation for women. My wish for the future is to find a house that has more room for my family and for me to do what I love to do the most, cooking. I would also like to open my own restaurant business so I can make all the dishes I love.
