Marcos SaldivarHe/Him/His Undocumented Student Liaison/New Student Enrollment Coach, McHenry County College
I was an undocumented immigrant who overcame significant challenges to become the first in my family to graduate college, with a BA in Business Administration. Now, as the Undocumented Student Liaison at MCC, I use my experiences to assist students who are in the position I once was. Beyond the campus, I run a successful landscaping business, a symbol of my entrepreneurial drive. My wife and I, both having been undocumented, share a deep connection with the community we serve. Every day, my journey fuels my purpose: to ensure every undocumented student has access to the opportunities they deserve.
