My name is Abril Rodriguez Diaz, and I am a senior at Orange County School of the Arts. I take frequent trips to Tijuana with my family. I noticed that the homeless in Mexico do not have access to the same support systems provided in the United States, so I decided to use my unique living circumstances to provide support.

All of the proceeds donated to 4 the Border are used to purchase materials for our packages. I put the packages together and hand them out at the San Ysidro Port of Entry or at a migrant camp in Tijuana.
