Valedictorian Says She’s Undocumented Immigrant

by

Girl this #BeautyShopTalk has really started some conversation! Did you hear the speech from the young lady, who’s the valedictorian of a McKinney high school here in DFW? She made the news because this wasn’t just an ordinary speech it was one that was PACKED full of words that would have the entire country talking! Like we’re doing!

According to an article online, Larissa Martinez, dropped a lot of jaws as she stood before her graduating class at McKinney Boyd High School in McKinney, Texas, and detailed her difficult journey to her class through a series of “unexpected realities,” and ending on her undocumented status
“I am one of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the shadows of the United States.”

Here’s the caveat, she earned a FULL RIDE to Yale!! This has a lot of folks clapping and praising her success that’s she’s obviously earned, but a lot of people are saying, hold up!! Did we all just act like we didn’t hear her say that she was “UNDOCUMENTED” tho?? What are your thoughts?
