The one’s I did have were not the kind which I would try to keep any relationship with after moving away. The only people of whom I held any strong bond to were my parents.

I visit Dominican Republic once or twice a year, usually in the summer when I get longer vacations and so my siblings and parents. When I’m there it’s tons of fun but I don’t think I see myself ever living there again. I’m so used to the things that Mexico has offered me that I think living in Mexico was very good for my life and learning. I have family in Dominican Republic, that’s why I visit a lot, and I also left behind a couple of friends whom I’m still great friends with. Moving to Mexico was very hard for me, but now that I’d live there for so long, I don’t know if I’ll be able to live somewhere

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.
