Why? because of the stigma that plagues my neighborhood. Because of the lies told by the people looking in form the outside. When you live in a neighborhood where selling drugs is more acceptable then getting a real job or going school then you would understand.

I am just showing that where I live and where I come from do not define me.

And things are different now. Because now I get the chance to prove myself. I don’t get turned away right away. Yeah I get the “ another latina chick” look but that’s to be expected.

Again. equal opportunity not equal outcome.

Everyone gets a chance, if you make the right choices.
