I AM

By Secilia Orozco

Glendale Middle School

I am from Glendale and made by Latinos.

I am from a place people call Ghetto but I call this ghetto place Mi Casa.

I am from a place where others think we don’t have dreams and we don’t care about education. They don’t know the way we live and we do have dreams, big ones.

I am a Latina but born in the US.

I am strong because I don’t let any dumb comment bring me down.

I am unique because I am not like anyone else.

I will be a leader to my people.

I will be successful to stop deportation.

I will be strong and not let society bring me down.
