I hope to one day be a Latina Hero

I do hope one day to be a Latina hero and as a Latina hero I would like to be known as someone who was understanding, not scared to voice her opinions, and who was a friend to everyone and anyone who needed one.

 

 In this growing world, so many new things are happening around us that sometimes it’s difficult to find someone who can truly understand us or at least not judge us. I’ve seen it time and time again in not only the Latina community, but in every community. People slowly start feeling alone because of who they are or where they come from. It pains me to see this and I just want everyone to know that there is someone out there who will accept you and be a friend. I am one of those people and I hope to one day be known for this.

 

With also so much going on in our society, I also have seen that many people are too scared to be open about their opinions. Unless you are insulting someone, you shouldn’t be scared to voice your opinions. I am very grateful that I live in a country where freedom of speech exists. One powerful tool we will always have is our voice. Never let anything stop you from using it. As the saying goes, “speak your mind even if your voice shakes.” This is something I slowly learned growing up. I was too afraid to voice my opinions but I have learned to appreciate it and use it.

 

As an aspiring Latina hero, I want to be known as a friend to everyone and making my voice heard.
