Being born into a Hispanic family, I was constantly influenced by my parents, peers, and school officials to work harder than an average American kid because I was labeled as Mexican not American. My culture has strict, strong standards when it comes to having men lead the household, women bear and raise the children, and children follow the parents’ footsteps. However, I grew up contemplating to contradict my Hispanic heritage. It began with learning how to speak, write, and read English all on my own because my parents only knew Spanish. I knew my parents wanted a different future for my siblings and I, for they only made it to primary school before having to work and raise their first child.

Additionally, that is why helping undocumented immigrants is significant because they are generally afraid to voice their opinions because of the language barriers. Growing up in a Hispanic household gave me first hand experience on what it is like being from a different country, and not knowing the best of English.
