I AM from the land of tall Pine trees, where the stars at night are big and bright.
I AM molded from two different cultures. I AM whose heart belongs to the land of stars and stripes, but also to the land where the eagle devoured the snake.
I AM from my mother’s sacrifices and my father’s sweat. I AM from a community that has made me humble and brave.
I AM from the belief that dreams are beautiful adventures meant to be pursued. I dream about visiting Spain and Portugal. I dream about going to poor and underdeveloped countries. I dream about becoming immersed in their culture, and bringing a little bit of my education to them. I want to laugh with them and I want to learn from them.
