We are Peruvian


I have been raised in this country, I appear to be fully Caucasian.

I speak English fluently, but I also speak Spanish.

I identify myself as a Hispanic American, because of my roots.

My mother came to this country at 18, she never had the chance to study.

I have the chance to study.

I take this opportunity seriously.

I strive to succeed because of her.

My mother has taught me that faith, family, and education are the most important.

I am known for my morals, relationships with others, and hardworking attitude.

I am happy to surprise people with my ethnicity, it is funny to see their shocked faces.

I am proud to be Hispanic as well as have the opportunities an American does.

My mom would be proud too.

We are Peruvian.
