During her visit to the Consulate General of Mexico, Andrea said, “I understand how not being close to your roots and your people is lived in a different way. I know that everyone experiences it in different ways with greater or lesser advantages, but I want to tell you that I understand them. I am here because I want to be the voice of all migrants to tell our stories.”

In addition, Andrea Meza received her consular registration that certifies her as a Mexican resident in New York. The consular registration is a document issued by the Consular Offices to certify the nationality and identity of a person as a Mexican residing abroad.

For a moment I felt I was in my homeland. Thank you for the welcome and I share with you that today I obtained my Consular Registration as a resident living in New York. This document identifies us as Mexicans residing abroad and serves as official identification. We can all obtain it!”
