Welcome to my site, I would like to share with you one of my favorite Bible verses. It means a lot to me and keeps me Humble.
"Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." Amen

I come from a family of criminals or so I am told. No, not gangsters or meth-heads, but “illegals.” My mother and father came to this country illegally from Mexico twenty years ago. One of the main reasons why my parents decided to migrate to the United States was because they were running from a family member that was trying to kill my father. However, these twenty years in this country have not been easy for my family. My mother has not seen my grandmother in more than twenty-two years. And my dad was not able to attend my grandparents’ funeral as a result of the life we have made in the United States, and of the complications he would encounter reentering the U.S. We have been through many challenges, but I always try to look at it from a positive perspective. My dad used to be an abusive alcoholic parent; it was a time in my life when I did not see an end to the countless police calls, cries for help, and loss of hope. However, God has performed miracles in our lives and has changed my dad for good. We lost our house through foreclosure, a home which was the one thing my parents considered their own and it was taken away so easily. My older brother got deported and it separated my family, so I always fear losing another family member due to their status in this country. I can go on and on about the challenges my family has faced, yet what is most important is how they have shaped me as an individual. These challenges have made me a stronger person who is determined to make my parents proud of their sacrifices. I want to give back. My family is hard working; my parents have given up their lives to provide me with a better one. That is why, I am hungry to go out there and challenge myself to be someone in life. Any time, I think even for a split second of quitting, I immediately remind myself of what my parents and siblings sacrificed to help me get where I am today. I am a proud to be a first generation high school student raised in an illegal family, and I am proud to say that I will be the first woman of my family to graduate from a four-year university and to be the one redeeming my family’s criminal act of love.
