I Am More

By Julia Lima, TIWP student

I am more than brown eyes and black hair.

I am more than “Some Kind of Latina.”

I am more than “You Speak Spanish, Right?”

I am more than “Sorry, Let Me Explain it in Easy English.”

I am more than “Are Your Parents Legal?”

I am not what you think I am.

Yes, I am Latina, and I am proud.

Yes, I can speak Spanish along with three other languages.

No, you don’t have to explain it again, thank you.

Yes, my parents are legal.

In fact they built up my everything from scratch and inspire me more

than anyone ever has or ever will.

I am not what you think I am.

I am So Much More.
