B is a 20-year-old Salvadoran transgender woman. She arrived in Costa Rica in March 2016, running away from an ex-boyfriend, who was involved with gang. Before leaving El Salvador, B's mother gave her this medallion of the virgin to protect her on her journey. "The hardest part is being alone, without my family, without work. So young and in a foreign country", says B. Two of her three brothers live in the United States; if Costa Rica doesn't reconsider her asylum case–which was rejected–and she has no other option, she'll look for a way to join them.

I am a journalist from Bogotá, Colombia currently based in Miami Florida, where I work with the Video Features team of Univision News Digital. Most of the stories I work on deal with questions of migration and human mobility– topics that interest me profoundly. www.andreapatino.com
