When her visa expired at the age of 14, Julissa Arce found out she was an undocumented immigrant. Despite this life-changing news, the hard-working Latina from Mexico went on to become a vice president at Goldman Sachs in Wall Street —all the while managing to keep her immigration status a secret.

Now, an American citizen and activist, Arce is sharing her story in her riveting new book “My (Underground) American Dream.”

“The story really talks about what is the cost of the American dream, what are the sacrifices that are necessary to pursue your dreams,” Arce said.

With her unique story of perseverance, Arce sits down with Chica to reveal why she left a successful career in finance and share her views on the upcoming presidential election as a first-time voter.
