Naya Rivera can now add "director" to her resume, as she unveiled her newest creative effort: a PSA for the first-ever Immigrant History Month. The nationwide effort, which runs for the month of June, worked to showcase and gather inspirational stories of immigration in America.

The video, which shows an envelope being passed from person to person, highlights everyones backgrounds and immigration stories. 

“Aside from being a Latina, my family immigrated from Puerto Rico and Yugoslavia so I know all about that,” she told BuzzFeed. “I wouldn’t be able to do what I do today if they didn’t come to America. Everybody has an immigration story.”
