I am a 20 year old guy, that came to the united states when I was 9. I been here for 11 years more then half of what I have lived. When I was 11, I always dream about driving Everywhere in Oregon.

I always been wanting to drive to visit all the beautiful places in Oregon. I have try to in buses and friends and stuff. But there is nothing batter then driving your self to places. Oregon has been a home to me I live in wilsonville an been here for 11 years. My parents sometimes wanted to move to other states but me and my brother never wanted to leave Oregon. I live the cold and rainy weather. If I can I want to live the rest of my life in Oregon, I got really amazing memories and friends here.

I wish I had a driver license, I wish I had car, I wish the government understood that some of us are not criminals. That we want to be part of this state.

I want to drive when is raining I want to drive to every single part of Oregon.... I hope Causa can help us get a license and I hope the government sees that we all want to be happy and we all want to be part of this state... I hope we get the license back.
