That’s why I decided to write this. I always think about sharing my story. I sometimes talk about it… but I never do it. I keep my story to myself… but that’s not how impact works. That’s not how change happens.
That’s not how I can inspire people like Ram inspired me. He asked the audience “Who are you?”… Because how do you know what you want, if you don’t know who you are?
I could tell you that I’m a Mexican-American female, who is the youngest of seven children, who grew up in Gary, Indiana… but does that tell you “Who I am”? No. Those are facts about how I identify.
To tell you who I am:
I am a a good person, who has struggled. I am a graphic designer who has earned everything she has, but still isn’t where she wants to be. I am a mother who doesn’t want to repeat her parents mistakes. I am a dreamer. I am survivor. And every day… I am grateful that I’m alive.
