My name is Selena Sandoval and I’m a Xicana from the Pilsen community in Chicago. I recently read my poem, “Las Mujeres Que Me Enseñan Cada Día”, at this event called Noche De Poetas which is held at my school, UIC. It’s about the struggles that the Latinx community faces in our society but also learning how to grow out of the labels which have been branded on us. These are my own experiences I’ve had growing up and I hope someone else can identify with them and it makes you feel a little less alone in your endeavors. ✊🏽✨💖
