I don’t see enough of America Chavez on here so I’m going to share my favourite quote from her. 

“ In my dreams, I’m a hypernova. But when I wake up, I’m some faded neon sign blinking on and off and I haven’t figured out the way to get there, to be that blast of energy, you know?America, Issue #4 .

you know why it’s my favourite? Because often, too often, we tend to remember America as this very strong, kick ass, not-giving-any-damn-about-the-details, always-ready-for-a-fight, girl and we forget that she’s trying. She is trying so hard to do the right thing, be the right person for the job and that she doubts herself sometimes. Like everyone else. 

That’s why she’s my hero.That’s why I love her.
