Ni de aquí ni de allá, Mexican-American.
One of my favorite memories as a little girl visiting Mexico is of my grandfather taking me to the doctor when I was sick. Like every child I always hated going to the doctor, but somehow he always managed to make it special by taking me to The Licuado and Torta place afterwards. It was one of my favorite things.

To be a Puertorrican is a privilege that brings me the eyes to see the world from the perspective of an island woman. To be Hispanic gives me the opportunity to value the resources, the people, the diversity, the language, the food, the weather, and also to have challenges to move forward in life. To be a Hispanic means to work hard for what you want and to demonstrate the value of our culture to the world. To respect my identity and to love what I am.

I vividly remember my mother putting my voter registration card in the Bible. It was the safe place for most of our important documents. During the 2008 elections, I stood in line with a 77 year old woman. She was dressed in what most people in the South refer to as her “Sunday” best. The line was long and my son was talking nonstop, so I offered to hold her spot. She squeezed my hand and said, “It’s ok, baby. I’ve been waiting for this my whole life. There is nowhere else I’d rather be standing."
