Luis is a Mexican-born, high school junior in Los Angeles.
He's one of the more than a million undocumented young people growing up in the US today.
Luis's parents brought him with them from Nayarit, Mexico when he was only 10-months-old.
Luis narrates his own tale as part of a new story-telling project called Sonic Trace.
