Gaby Pacheco who calls herself "an undocumented American" is an immigrant rights leader from Miami, Florida. She has been speaking about her lack of papers since high school.

As one of the creators of the Florida-based, youth-led group, Students Working for Equal Rights, she began organizing when she realized she was just one of hundreds of undocumented students in her community.

In 2010, she and three friends walked 1,500 miles from Miami to Washington, DC, to bring to light the plight of immigrants in this country, and to urge President Obama to stop the separations of families and deportations of DREAM Act-eligible youth. As political director of the national youth group United We Dream, she spearheaded efforts that led President Obama to announce the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
