19-Year-Old Texas Girl Seeks Help to Prove Her American Citizenship

Subscribe to 101.5 KNUE on

Alecia Pennington is a 19-year-old who lives in Texas. But she has no way of proving that, or that she even exists for that matter.

Her video posted on YouTube already has more than 400,000 views since Monday. It is a plea asking for the public’s help to assist her in finding a way to prove she is actually an American citizen.

In the video she says she was born at home and her parents did not file a birth certificate. She has no birth record, no Social Security number — no proof at all that she exists. She says she was home-schooled her entire life, and now as an adult she’s not able to attend college, get a job, vote, or obtain a driver’s license.

What makes it worse is she says her parents are refusing to help her.

“I didn’t pick this situation for myself. I just have to deal with the consequences,” Alicia says. “And I don’t know how to fix it. I don’t know how to get out of this. I want to travel. I want to get an education. I want to be just a functioning American.”

Things we take for granted every day have been stripped from this young lady. Do you know how you can help, or know someone who can? You can email Alicia atĀ
