People protesting for immigrant rights

What We Do

Metamorphosis aims to provide resources for undocumented high school, undergraduate, and non-traditional students alike. Our main component is telling the stories of other undocumented people, so that these stories may showcase that there is no one straight path to achieve success as an undocumented person. Another component is to provide lists of scholarships students may apply to and organizations that students may utilize for their services or join. Moreover, Metamorphosis will keep people updated with any immigration news happening locally and nationally. Finally, this site will compile events of interest to undocumented people that are happening in NYC, such as marches, conferences, or legal clinics that are organized by pro-immigrant organizations or undocumented-led organizations. Metamorphosis's core goal is to publicize pathways of hope for undocumented students. They shouldn’t pause their dreams because of not having papers.

Why We Do It

My name is Escarleth and I am a recent college graduate. As an undocumented student, I had a hard time finding resources when I was a senior in high school, as well when I was starting college. Now that I am aware of various resources, I believe it is necessary to spread these with other people like myself. It is important to help people in my community in order to lift one another. Metamorphosis should be a vehicle that allows others have access to opportunities feasibly instead of going through the internet just to end up finding a few opportunities. More so, Metamorphosis should enable students to look for resources that will lead them one step closer to their future goal whether it be to become a geologist, a professor, an artist, a doctor, or wherever their passion lies .

A place where borders are not welcome and education is a catalyst for change.
