Who am I?

I am a Hispanic-American, 14 years old.

Both of my parents are from Mexico

and it’s in my blood.

On weekdays, I sometimes go home

and watch novelas, eat tacos

and chicharrones with salsa valentina.

Yeah, I am a Hispanic girl

who is planning to have a Quinceanera

for an unforgettable day.

But I am also an American girl,

born here in the U.S.A.

and it also runs in my blood.

On Wednesdays, I look forward

to watching Modern Family

while eating hot dogs and hot cheetos.

Yeah, I am an American girl

who is planning to go to college

and live in a dorm.

I’m a Hispanic-American girl.
