SHARET GARCIA, mentoring and training Latino ‘undocuprofessionals’

In 2020, Sharet Garcia launched Undocuprofessionals, a free online mentorship program that connects undocumented mentees with undocumented mentors that have professional careers. Alongside the mentorship program, Garcia uses Instagram to provide information about undocumented opportunities and news nationwide. “I wanted to give back to my community, I knew if I started a platform like this, it would push me to work harder as well,” said Garcia. Garcia, 37, is an undocumented advocate, who became a single mother and head of the household in 2020.
