I am

I am Laura Rodriguez

I wonder what the future will hold for my family and me

I hear the lectures of my parents that motivate me to do better

I see the obstacles in front of my path that I will have to overcome to achieve my goals

I believe with my family’s support and love I can do anything

I am Laura

I pretend every day is a new day to make a change in my life

I feel proud of how my parents raised me to be who I am today

I touch my sister’s hand to guide her

I am Laura

I understand that in life I will face harsh challenges but have the decision to overcome them

I say nothing is impossible when I have my family to support me

I dream that I will accomplish my goals and make my parent’s sacrifices for me worth it

I try to be a good role model for my sister to look up to

I hope I will be able to achieve my goals and be able to repay my parent’s sacrifices

I am Laura Rodriguez
