Bubbles MAG

By Jaclyn S., Congers, NY

     I applaud Samantha S. for the bold move she described in “Bubbles.” I sometimes have trouble filling in the “ethnicity bubble” on standardized tests, too.

I am 100 percent Jordanian, and although this would make my ethnicity Middle Eastern, I was born in, and have never traveled out of, America. My skin is very light and I am often mistaken for being Italian or Hispanic.

Reading “Bubbles,” I feel that Samantha‘s choice to create a new bubble entitled “me” reflects her pride in her ethnicity and has encouraged me to do the same. I will no longer allow myself to be perplexed by the state‘s generalizations, I will instead feel proud of my background. Thanks to Samantha, the state should be expecting more “me” bubbles next to their request for “ethnicity.”
