My name is Claudia.
I was born in Honduras. My father is a Cuban exile. We came to America when I was a child because we sought safety, freedom, and a brighter future. We sought a place where we didn’t have to fear for our lives on a daily basis.
I am boundlessly thankful for living here every single day. It’s been fourteen years - a time replete with struggles and obstacles. This is where I’ve grown up, where I’ve learned English, where I’ve learned everything. I mean, home is definitely where you read your first Harry Potter book, right?
Despite this, there are many people who argue that we’re not American, that we “need to go back home.” But after fighting so hard to come here and stay here? This is home. We are Americans.
I am the American way.
