Julissa immigrated to America from Mexico at the age of 11. On the surface, Arce's story reads like a how-to manual for achieving the American dream. She worked tirelessly at school, achieved academic excellence, and landed a coveted job on Wall Street. Later, the CNBC newscaster made international headlines when she revealed that she had attained success at Goldman Sachs while undocumented. Arce will share her incredible and inspiring true story and examine the plight of millions of other undocumented Americans living in the U.S.
