I am a first generation Latin-Americian girl. I am constantly hearing crude and uncalled for remarks. I have been asked where I was 'really' born. Trust me, I know where I was born! Anyway, it can be difficult for people to be true to who they are and be what pop-culture tells us what to be. I know from expirence that you may want to show who you are but feel like people will call you DIFFRENT or WIERD. But, you are not WIERD for saying Oh Dios mío or Accidentally turning into you Abuelita when someone doesn't wear a coat outside. The whole point of this is to say "You are not WIERD you are beautiful or handsome, because you are you! Do not let anyone let you feel ashamed. Just keep you head up and walk on."
