At 15, Inocente Izucar Galicia had led a life few of us could ever imagine. For nine years, she lived with secrets she never shared with anyone at her school in San Diego, Calif. – she was undocumented and homeless. She says she blamed herself that her father was deported for domestic abuse. Her mother of four once took her by the hand to jump off a bridge together in order to put an end to the misery. It was Inocente who saved them.
No matter how devastating things got, Inocente still looks at life through the eyes of an innocent child, where all dreams are possible. She is an artist who spews out vibrant colors, making the world around her look like a colorful playground.
