I assume this semester I have learned how to be a improve my writing in my whole life than ever. But I feel the highest things I have improved in was remembering to capitalize your I’s and to pull out of all the worn out words such as; Big, good, and bad and Instead I use colossal, Favorable, and Improper.

Ultimately, I learned tons of excellent material to use in my life for later semesters and years to

My mom worked hard and always told me if its one thing she will make sure of is that I get the best education she can afford. I remember my mom having to work hard at her job and still come home and help my grandmother do all the house chores while my uncles just played video games after school all day.

I identify as a Latina. I have always considered myself as a Latina, but throughout time, I believe that I have assimilated more into a white individual because of the privilege that I hold and because I have lived in the US most of my life. I have received mostly negative messages from those who are not from my ethnicity. My peers and I were told we wouldn’t graduate high school and be laborers for the rest of our lives. With the current politics, I believe that this still holds true where some people still hold stereotypes and give oppressing messages to Latinos.
Growing up in a hispanic family directly affected the environment I was exposed to. Everyone around me always greatly emphasized the importance of family, being humble, and being generous.. My teachers, friends, family, and loved ones majorly impacted me and shaped me into who I am today. When one is brought up in a small town, a lot like the one I was brought up in, one is destined to typically be exposed to the same type of people as long as you live in that certain town. Everyone in my small hometown usually had a background story like the one my parents have, therefore, they also usually had a lot of the same morals and values my parents held high and taught me.
Culturally, family is the base of my Hispanic heritage. As a child my mother taught me that family is the most important aspect of life. I remember my abuelita and uncle visiting every Thanksgiving and telling stories about their youth, from my uncle getting lost in Yosemite National Park to my abuelita regularly being dragged by the ear to Mother Superior’s office. When she came to visit, my abuelita would always share the family albums that she had stuffed in her suitcase. With every picture there was both a story and a lesson.
It is almost two in the morning, and we still have not been able to see her. Five days have passed by, and the presence of my mother was non-existent.
