Born in a spanish speaking family, I loved reading and I love my family and I like the way my life is right now
Going to school was tough for me because I did not speak English as well as the other kids but I still enjoyed reading and enjoyed going to the library after school.
Experiencing different cultures was confusing and I was told by the other kids that reading in my free time was not cool and I should be outside playing so I kind of gave up on reading
As a teen I am confused about what language I should speak and what I should do. I was still figuring myself out and I did not know where I belonged. I am a little afraid of not being accepted by my own culture and I am also a little afraid of not being accepted by the culture that I live in.
I am now back to reading and I love reading more than ever. I have realized that I never stopped enjoying reading and I will not give that up again
I am a lot more confident now that I understand the condition I grew up in and that I love both cultures equally much. I have gained confidence and I like to read for fun.
