By Darianny Abreu SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC NEWS) — Evelyn Angamarca, a Syracuse University student got teary eyed and took a deep breath when she thought of her future as a student.

Angamarca, dressed in an all-black outfit with a blazer and slacks, told NCC news reporter Darianny Abreu that her anxiety as she waits to find out if the DACA agreement between Democrats and President Trump will work out. The unsettling agreement that is still to be finalized, has made Angamarca want to become more active on campus to make sure her voice is heard.

“If I don’t fight for this, who will?” said Angamarca, Syracuse University DACA student.

Angamarca comes from Ecuadorian parents that weren’t able to attend college making her a first generation college student. She has an older sister who also receives DACA but graduates college this year, which Angamarca says makes her nervous that she won’t have the same opportunity.

“I just got it and know it’s right away taken away, like yay I could work now but its like no wait I might not be able too. I’m not 100 percent sure I would be able to finish school here and graduate.” said Angamarca, DACA student.
