As I soon realized, with the glare of my mother and a disapproving father, they believed to have a child so young sealed my fate. They probably thought I would never return to school and work a minimum wage job the rest of my life. This is when I first began believing failure is not an option, I must work harder and do better to prove to my parents I will have a better future for my son and me. As my beliefs were tested as I transitioned from college to home at five months pregnant, needing to find a full-time job so I could afford becoming a mother. I was consistently rejected during my job search, until I was approximately seven months pregnant.
I grew up being labeled not good enough already before I did anything. I haven’t had a chance to do or prove anything yet but my family already hated me simply because I was born a girl. After already having five girls, my parents wished and dreamed for a boy. They wanted a boy more than anything and they did everything they could to have a boy. They went to a Shaman for
I was constantly depressed, and crying myself to sleep knowing that I didn’t say goodbye to her, that she wouldn’t be there for my quinceanera. My grandmother was the person that influenced my parents into coming to America, and finding a future for me, a better education, and opportunities, things I would never achieve in Cuba. My mom would always tell me to study hard, and keep moving forward because my grandmother would always ask about me and how i’m doing in school, as well as to keep pursuing my dreams. At school I was able to focus on my work with the help of my friends. They were there by my side, and many of them understood my pain because they have once lost a grandparent in their life before, they would tell me that the pain would pass by soon, and that life keeps going.
I expected opening up to make me feel vulnerable or scared. Instead I felt more empowered than I had before. Talking through what happened made me realize the amount of love and support I had all along even though I felt so alone. This helped me to become less isolated, understanding that all those things my friends and family did was because they truly cared about me; not because they pitied me or felt burdened. Recreating one’s traumatic experience can be tremendously intimidating, but in a calming environment with someone trustworthy it becomes easier

When I was a year old, my mother and I left everything behind in Mexico to start a new life here in the United States. Of course, being young, I had no idea of the tremendous consequences that would be implicated upon my family and my future. She came here so we could have a chance to live the American Dream and escape the poverty and crime there was in Mexico. It was a hard decision my mother made at the time but it was the best for the both of us. When I look back on my childhood I wondered to myself how did I get through it, cause I guess you can say that I really never had a childhood like the other kids.
As I saw the world of America as soon we landed, I knew that I had an opportunity to succeed if I tried my best. My mom, my dad, my brother; no one knew how to speak English. We had to get help from my aunt to find a house and fill in the application for attending school. I attended Strawberry Point Elementary School in San Francisco without knowing any English. I was scared, yet determined to succeed.
This society authored by the Chinese had its benefits and its drawbacks. To begin with, the Chinese society had many positive attributes which greatly shaped classical China. Firstly, slavery in China was found within the aristocratic estates, but the Chinese did not really rely on slavery as the engine to its economy, so relatively the slave population in China was small.

This sharing and diversity of religious thought greatly shaped the Chinese Empire as a divine culture and in intellectual advance.
She also never wanted to be away from my younger sister and me. She wanted to stay close to me and my younger sister. I also felt a massive amount of cognitive dissonance when she came home from wherever she came from and announced that she wanted to be a boy. Her behavior was inconsistent because she never thought or talked to us about being a boy when she was younger. She had always wanted to be a girl, and wanted to be herself before this point in time.
