Unsettled Journeys:

Exel Estrada, Patterson High School

Exel Estrada is one of more than 5,300 teens who have fled the violence and poverty in Central America and landed in Maryland. He grew up in Guatemala, and at age 15 fled to the United States. He was reunited with his mother in Baltimore, but like many other undocumented teens, Exel is struggling with family heartbreak, legal issues, and trying to balance school and work.
