I am… red.
I am the millions of Hispanic people in the U.S.
I am she, who was arrested at gunpoint at the age of seven by ICE.
I am the blood on the soles of those who walk the deserts blindly.
I am white.
Hungry for education, for a better tomorrow and a better life.
I am the Neonatal Doctors of tomorrow.
Not the average, not a criminal, nor am I the weak.
I represent the millions who vanish in the desert, the rivers and the sea.
I am those who are silenced, in the “land of the free.”
I am green.
My culture, my family and my ancestors.
I am a "DREAMer," a fighter and a National Achiever.
The daughter of two immigrant workers.
I am the golden eagle.
Representing the people who innovate, create and love.
Perched on a cactus, fighting for survival, acceptance and equal opportunity.
For those who do it all for a better and safe life, away from the venom of corruption,violence and poverty.
