"I became my own boss"

I came to the US from Honduras as an unaccompanied minor, and worked for years in construction. With DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) I was able to get a work permit and start my own company, Sarmioza Painting. DACA changed my life, but it’s now under attack. I can’t vote, so I hope you'll promise to do so (if you can) for me.  *  Vine a los Estados Unidos desde Honduras siendo menor de edad y sin acompañante. Trabajé durante varios años en la construcción. Con DACA, pude obtener un permiso de trabajo y creé mi propia empresa, Sarmioza Painting. DACA cambió mi vida, pero ahora está en peligro. Como no soy ciudadano americano, no puedo votar para proteger mi futuro. Si puedes votar, espero que prometas hacerlo, por mi.
