I am deeply patriotic. I attribute that to my grandmother who left Jalisco at the age of 18 to venture into a new world. We studied the constitution together as she became a naturalized citizen of the United States. She had me promise to never disrespect the privilege to vote, by failing to exercise the privilege.
I am Mexican-American. I am equally proud of being each; I would not want to be anything else.
The United States gave me opportunities. I can think of nowhere on the planet where a little girl of such humble beginnings, who grew up in a tiny 500 sq ft home, could think that the world was filled with possibilities.
And every goal I succeeded or surpassed. It is because of this amazing nation.
Today and every day I celebrate The United States of America.
Have a safe and sane 4th !!
