Steve Li was born in Lima, Peru and came to the United States when he was ten years old. In 2010 Steve Li was put into deportation proceedings and spent over two months in a detention center in Arizona awaiting deportation. Fortunately, he was able to come back home to San Francisco with the support from the community and the Asian Law Caucus, which led to Senator Dianne Feinstein introducing a private bill to delay Steve's deportation to Peru. Today he is a student at the University of California Davis and he is involved in the community as an advocate for the DREAM Act and immigrant rights. His career aspiration is to go into the field of medicine and open a free clinic in the Bay Area to serve uninsured/under insured immigrant communities.
