Illegal Immigrant approach

Postby arinchoi » Fri Oct 12, 2012 10:53 am

Hi, this is my first time posting!

I'm working on my fourth draft of my personal statement, and while I am describing my first positive interaction with a lawyer, I included a short anecdote of how my parents were illegal immigrants. The lawyer was instrumental in helping us renew our visas. Do you think this is a bad topic because we were technically "illegal" at the time? We are all U.S. citizens now, so I don't know if it would be a bad topic to discuss.

Thanks for your input guys! :D

Stick with "undocumented immigrant" if you're going to talk about it.
