MIRAME! I am too white for my family. Too Mexican for society. I am told to pick a side, but i am not good enough for either.
Mirame to me means: I demand respect. I know I am good enough. I accept the culture that I denied for so long. I will no longer pick and choose the popular and acceptable part of my culture. I will accept it as a whole.
I am American, but the blood of my Latinx ancestors run just as strongly in my veins.
