Can I put my identity on a page?
I am sixteen, born in Miami.
I live in a collision of cultures.
Family born in Venezuela,
I learn about the Latin world my family is from,
Through food, stories, and language.
I don’t know everything in life,
What I do know,
Is my roots define who I am.
Inspired by the never-ending waterfalls,
That enhance the land.
This ancestry is a part of me,
As I am a part of it,
Interlacing me into a grander story,
Spanning across the world
Our Hispanic heritage changes the way we walk our paths,
However unique they each are.
Some things to know about me are: I love to listen to music and laugh with my friends. I also like to volunteer at many different places in my free time in order to help and learn new things. I hope you enjoy my writing this year!
