“The happiest moment was my quinceanera party.It was fun because all my family and friends were there.The saddest moment was when my dad and grandma died.It was sad because I loved them very much.”*Nods head* “I have been depressed like I said when my my dad died I wanted to be left alone.My angriest momets where when my mom got me in trouble for fun.It was all because my sisters lied on me so my mom would hit me with a chancla. Yes, sadly I have been bullied by the way I dressed and spoke.I remember one name they called me ‘pipilandro’.I’m over it now I don’t care what people think of me.’’
